" Beds in a row"

Unread postby Swampthing » Mon Jan 03, 2011 4:08 pm

As anyone ever came across this ? There are 8 or 9 beds almost in a straight line going down a gradual hillside.

Must of missed this when it was posted... :think: Looks like doe beds, interesting they are in a line rather than spread out.

How long had it been since it snowed? Looks like more than one days use by does and fawns.

Didn't realize how old this post was.

Could it be they changed the elevation slightly to adjust for thermals or wind speed etc. over the course of several days?

I have seen this before with doe family groups but most times they bed in a circle and spread out some.

One thing is that there is never a sure thing when it comes to deer and finding things like this keeps it interesting.

I completely forgot about this post. It sure was a strange sight to see. Never seen this before or since.

My guess would be a yarding situation with the amount of traffic through there.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.
