Anyone one scouting this weekend ?

Unread postby oldrank » Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:31 pm

Im gonna try and get out Saturday morning for a couple hours and scout another marsh ive been messing with for a few years. I am thinking I have a buck bed pegged after studying my maps and thinking of a few times I have bumped deer coming into this spot. If he is bedding where I think he is almost unapproachable from land and I may need to kayak in from the other side of the swamp to get behind him. Its either that or hike a mile around the back side in a big loop.

Anybody else going out his weekend for some scouting?

Will be ice fishing this weekend saturday but hoping to get out sunday afternoon for a short walk in a new place that is only open to hunting for a short period of time during the rut. I won't really be looking for beds to set up on, since snow is covering everything. Just checking on local deer herd numbers and terrain features that will help for a (hopefully) action packed rut hunt next november.

I took this last weekend off from anything hunting related (first time since early September) and officially kicking off my 2014 scouting season on Saturday. 8-)

Friday might hit a couple smaller public chunks for a few hrs. Saturday ill be pulling an all dayer. Hope the snow isnt TOO deep. If I find 1 big buck bed and figure a gameplan for it ill be super happy. Antlers are a bonus. Getting the marsh and swamps scouted out first and hit hills when everything is melting is my plan. Will come back in spring to likely really good locations in the marsh. Ive been thinking about this all day the last two days. Hopefully Sunday ill hit a spot in the am too, need to keep the woman happy as well..:/

Started my scouting season last saturday, plan on hitting the woods every weekend until it gets too miserable in the summer. Too much to learn, so little time. Snow depth didn't seem bad in SW WI, settled after the warm weather.

Too much snow up here, have to wait for spring. Can't even access a lot of my areas because the roads aren't plowed in the winter, wondering if I shouldn't get a scouting snowmobile. 8-)

I won't be scouting anytime soon after this last big dumping of snow. Ice fishing until the thaw...

Reason you guys not scouting because you cant get as much out of your scout (cant walk as far, sign covered up)? Or because its just a pita?
