Now that you have narrowed down your scouting to a few areas its time to search for deer signs. The most common and easily noticed sign of deer activity is a heavily worn deer trail. Once a trail like this is found make sure that the tracks marking the trail go both ways, i.e.. make sure the trail is used frequently and not just a large group of deer that passed through. Besides tracks sometimes bucks (male deer) will rub small cedar and pine trees with their horns leaving the trees shaved. Also, these bucks make small scraps about 2-3 feet in circumference in this same are. These are just some of the signs you will learn to notice with time. Just be creative in looking and keep an open eye!
