Direction is or or how bulletproof you Think your scent control routine is you Are gonna get busted there is a reason Why deer like these areas so much and You might get lucky with some young deer In there that if you've got a good scent Control routine that can kind of tell Something's off or maybe you just fool Those young deer enough but a deer That's been around a long time kind of Knows what's up deer can lay in these Areas and get an almost 360 degree scent Check at any time the wind blows you may Think your scent is blowing off to the Right away from where you expect the Deer to come from but what you don't Realize is maybe just 50 yards or maybe Even less than that down to the right It's swirling back around and coming Back in front of you and you don't know How many deer you've alerted and just Because you don't hear a deer blow does Not mean that they aren't alerted they May just quietly slip out and you never Knew they were there and you don't want To just ignore these areas all together Just because of that whole topography Issue because there is a lot of good Sign there a better option is to find The trails that lead in and out of them And hunt you know kind of up on a Ridge Top somewhere where the wind is more Predictable and in your favor you don't Want to go right to the middle of these

Areas unless you're desperate it's the End of the season and you just want to Fill a tag your approaches to your Hunting area should always be to have a More outside in approach stay on the Outside edges and then if you have to Make moves you got to move closer just Slowly work your way in again unless You're desperate don't just go barreling Right into the middle of the activity Because you're going to ruin that whole Sign altogether this is a much safer way To hunt but it takes patience and that's Something that a lot of us don't have Much of and so the second terrible Hunting spot is kind of a stretch so Just hear me out and it's right on the Edge of your food plots like I said just Hear me out I know that food plots are a Great place to hunt I mean it's why we Plant them they're great hunting season Attraction but there are typically two Problems you'll find with hunting over Your food plots and the first is when You stick your stand like right on the I Mean immediately on the edge of the food Plot every little movement you make is Exposed when you are right on the edge Of your food plot probably sticking out Over it a good spot to hunt a place that Has good cover is something that's got a Foreground a middle ground and a Background and when you hunt right on The edge you completely remove that

Foreground and you might as well have a Giant light bulb a giant sign pointing To you that says I'm a Hunter don't come Here a better place to hang your stand If you still want to hunt over your food Plot is to tuck it back in the tree line A little bit farther this gives you that That cover in front of you and depending On the time of the year some Shadows if Those trees still have plenty of Leaf Cover on them and the other reason why I Think that hunting right on top of your Food plots can be a terrible place to Hunt is that people tend to over hunt Them I know we spend a lot of time and Money cultivating them and I'm sure There are tons of pictures of deer out There using it but over hunting a spot Any spot not just over your food plots Is a terrible idea and those food plots Tend to give you a false sense of Confidence that you're gonna see deer Every time and you might see you know Decent deer out there almost every time You hunt but the more you hunt it the Less likely you are to see those deer Out in there during daylight hours There's always that chance that you're Going to leave some scent behind that You're going to bump deer in and out of It and they're going to start Associating you with that food plot and Then they're you're only going to see Them at night and so another way that

You can hunt your food plots without Being right over top of them is to find The trails leading in and out of them And Hunt over those that way you are Still taking advantage of the attraction They provide but you don't risk over Hunting them because you have multiple Ways you can take advantage of it and The third terrible hunting spot is any Spot that you can't get to undetected a Great stand location with lots of deer Sign is no good if you can't get there Without alerting deer every time you Show up to hunt it so anytime you find a Spot that you think you want to hunt Think about how you're going to be able To get to and from it quietly and Without being seen you need to be able To use the topography to your advantage You need to be away from known bedding Areas and you need to be able to keep The scent in your face at least away From where you think the deer are going To be so there's no way to get their Stealthily then you need to do the hard Thing and find another spot I'm sure There is a spot somewhere else to where You can still take advantage of the sign That's in the area but isn't it more Advantageous spot for you and also work On your woodsmanship skills learn how to Walk more quietly in the woods get Better at reading deer sign step scat There's an animal nearby hey Schmidt
