scouting report 3/21/15

Unread postby Fatal » Mon Mar 23, 2015 3:22 am

hey guys! I went scouting for bedding yesterday in a local state park, in a area I always walked right past before becoming a student of the beast style. I ended up finding a bed in a small marsh roughly 1 1/2-2 acres in size! and only about 300 yards from a main parking lot. here's a pic of the bed

decent rub about 10yrds away from bed

still have some work to do to figure out his pattern, gonna head back out today and scout the area a little more

Good job on finding the bed! Cool to see the machete too.

Very cool.

I never would have thought that they would bed in the water like that this time of year. I have seen them in the water when it is hot during the summer but I would have thought that bedding there would really suck up their body heat and cause hypothermia.

I don't think this bed is being used right now, the hair in the bed was probably preserved under the snow and ice. There were a few tracks in the area but not enough fresh sign to tell me that a buck is living here now. I'll just have to keep an eye on it and wait for a buck to start using it agan. I don't think it is a primary bed

That makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.
