Best part is you found a bed of a buck that’s still actually alive. Finding old beds does very little for you if the buck is already dead. Guys end up hunting bucks that don’t exist anymore.
Takes a lot of guesswork away when you can just follow tracks in the snow right to the bed. These beds typically are in the most secure spots around and are especially used this time of the year after excessive hunting pressure. Bucks feel safe in them for a reason and rely on them for primary bedding. When you find a primary bed you will know it right away because they are perfect in every way and almost impossible to reach undetected. Always good to know where these are even if it’s extremely difficult to hunt them.
