My second question of the day... It seems the water level of a lot of the swamps I hunt can go from being hard ground to being under up to 3 ft of water, usually only a foot or so though. Those spots are mostly flat land, so when the water comes up it doesn't leave much for a deer to bed on. I've seen does bed in these spots when its not under. I'm wandering if mature bucks will do the same. If they do, I won't be finding those beds any time soon. But I guess the real question is who hunts in similar swamps, and do you mainly focus on certain spots that a deer could bed all year round or do you try to get out when the water isn't high and find those other possible beds?

Its best to scout when the water is at normal hight. But I would think high water would destroy a lot of the sign of bedding... Might have to learn those spots by hunting and learning a little at a time, or the Andrea way, dive in during the season look at the beds once then come back and hunt it later.
