Yes they are.
Best part is you can see if they are there from the bridge.

Great finds.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

Gray x inside the red swirls is the beds.
Red arrows are what wind direction I think he would bed there, the high embankment to the road would swirl the winds. Maybe.....

Black arrow is the wind today and black x is where I jumped a buck and his escape route.

Yellow is where I think there will be some night beds.

Boat ramp has been out of use for two years due to low water level.

Definitely a buck bedding in the area since I saw him at thirty yards. :lol:

I was predator hunting and looking for trapping spots but the buck peaked my interest and I looked around some. Worked the creek back to the road and came across the beds.

Here is a pic of the bed the buck was in when I jumped him.

trail he took off down....

Maybe bobcat scat? Segmented and twisted ends....

Bobcat track?

Bobcat and a buck located in one trip.......what a great new year it will be..... :lol:
