Deer trails?

Unread postby DaHunter » Sun Mar 15, 2015 7:33 am

Do you think these are deer trails in the center? I'm guessing so, but I suppose some could be drainage because there is a lake nearby. No elevation changes on this specific pic, but there are some hills to the East. Anyway, Where would you set up? Can only really enter from the east (right side).

Could possibly be a combination of several different trails in including predators. Boots would tell the story.
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.

Those look like deer trials. I see similar trails on aerials in some of the spots I scout/hunt. In the picture, the trails run next to brushy areas that could be bedding. The brushy areas may have some trees from which you could hang a stand.
