Here is a bed I scouted out in a marsh area last week.

View out of bed. Yellow line is human trail in distant woods. He watches the trail. Pretty sweet to get my boots on the ground n find what Im looking for. I found a bunch more beds to. One tucked way up in the frag grass all by itself.

That is cool. Neat to sit in the bed and know you shared it with a buck............i think i may need help! :lol:

Looks like a good one to mark down for a hunt.

I dont know if this was a satellite buck bed or not. The other buck bed was alot more tucked away by itself. One bed deep in the frag grass by a lone tree... they was no visibility from the bed except down the entrance trail... i assume that would be the dominant buck bed. Im gonna run my cam out on some runs away from bedding areas in july and see if i can see what im dealing with...

Isn't it amazing when you realize how sneaky they are, once you get a "buck bed view":-)

Very cool.
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.

Exactly... You all these questions about buck beds by guys who have not found them yet, and then see the transformation when they get in them and see what the bucks sees... Its an eye opener for sure. Each buck bed is in an exact spot for specific reasons.
