Poo in deer beds

Unread postby jbone23 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 10:43 am

Got some scouting in this weekend and found a decent amount of doe beds with poo in them. Is this normal and why would they do that?

you found an area the deer are very comfortable in. poo in and around the beds is good.

Venison Isle in the Grocery market for sure. I recently bed scouting a historically great area for me to kill does early in my hunting career and found 5 beds in a thick spot nearby in a perfect circle with poo in around all of them. Also made some sense to me on why I killed them I had a big wet swamp I was next to with a huge section of open water in the middle and I always had great success there in the evening and I am pretty sure it was because the thermals were pulling to the water in the evening when it started cooling. I caught them moving to the oak hammock I thought it was because the hammock was so good,but I could never kill anything in the hammock. Which I look at now and know it's because they were walking through my scent stream the thermals were pulling to the water.

I drew this real quick to explain my setup on findings

Not going to have time to hunt that area this season :angry-banghead: Was in VA for a wedding had a couple of hours to burn decided to check out farm I hunt up there. Of course found a ton of good sign and jumped a decent buck and won't be able to touch it this year.
