game trail
« on: August 03, 2014, 09:44:10 AM »
I recently set up a new camera on a swamp area I found that hasn't been hunted in years, I ran the cam the fist time and found a deer trail that deer are coming and going up and down to a draw . There is no feed, minerals or any kind of attraction there... I see a stand going up there.. A lot of doe using it. Cant wait to run it again and see more pics. They definitely are using that trail

Your right .. where the does are, eventually the bucks come. the encouraging thing about these pics are 2 bucks going to the corner draw one day, and 2 does coming from the draw another day on the same trail. Its pretty soupy in there.. Im going to leave it alone until bow season and slip in there and hang a tree stand in the corner.. Im pretty excited about this spot, because its been left along for along time. There are no human trails going in or out of it, I found a place on a creek to get in there and it opens up pretty inside there.. I can see 200 yards..

I have a section of tall grass behind my house.  Usually, you can see one or two intertwining trails that the deer use.  It may shift slightly from year to year, but normally it starts on the southside of my property, down into a wide gully leading to a low area in my neighbor's property.  There is a slight ridge on the west side of the gully, and the deer travel along the ridge quite often.  It's a good spot to watch.

you need to put the puzzle together. there has to be a reason why they are using the trail. the food may be a mile or more away. it will help you figure out the best time to ambush them too. good luck

Your exactly right.. Theres a reason for them to be traveling up and down this trail. I know their going to a creek 200 yards into a draw that is loaded with White Oaks, but theres no acorns on the ground yet.. There is also a wet creek down there, but there basically walking in 3 inches of water getting there. But the trail is beat down with deer tracks traveling it. Im trying to slip in and out of it at this point, with hopes of getting a stand in there just before bow season. Once those acorns start to fall, I know they will stay along the creek eating those acorns.
