Bayfield scouting trip

Unread postby blackwolf » Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:39 pm

Took a quick trip north today to ready a stand for rut and look things over. There is no drought up north, lots of lush green undergrowth and plenty of water and muck! Acorns will be a bigger factor than usual in my area as they littered the ground in most oak areas and that is where I bumped into a couple does. Found a good buck bedding area, 3 beds fairly close to each other on the end of a point ridge 3/4 way up overlooking low marshy stream before next high spot. That makes for a much more difficult access across beaver pond to avoid spooking bedding location. One wrong step and I will be swimming this fall!

Sounds like a great area. Whenever I hunt up north I always seem to gravitate towards those wet marshy areas and beaver ponds that big bucks love to call home! 8-)
