Totally agree with this. Where I hunted in North GA, there are water and food sources everywhere. Bedding is the best chance you have and even then there are multiple bedding areas. Throw on top of this that most areas are so thick you are lucky to have more than a 15 yard window to shoot and it is tough hunting. I have been scouting much more aggressively this year to start the season and it is starting to help me put the puzzle pieces together.

That's the battle that I face where I hunt. There's no real isolated food or water source's in the area. So your best chance is to find their bedding areas and give those a shot. Unless it's rut, you'll have almost no chance killing one on a transition area unless it's close to bedding.

Warren Womack has a cool style of hunting in the South. Their are numerous podcast featuring him. Check them out.

I joined the hunting beast because l travel across and hunt in west Texas and I was hoping for some tips on hunting that far south. From what I've seen it's mainly hunting over bait, I'm only going to be over 3/4 weeks at a time and I'd rather try and hunt without bait if possible. In the past I've managed to rattle in bucks from the ground but that only works at certain times though it's very exciting when it does work , or set up on game trails or water .As a side note a lot of what dan has to say about whitetail applies to fallow deer , years back when I first started listening to podcasts with dan on it was like light bulbs going off , it was remarkable that two different species thousands of miles apart had so many common characteristics
