Pulling off a sneak on bedded whitetails is a tall order because they like to bed in places where they can see, smell or hear predators approaching. But there are times, when conditions are perfect, that a patient hunter can slip up on a deer in its bed. Moving quietly is not a problem after a rain or soft snow if you wear clothing like wool or fleece. Play the wind, move no more than two or three steps at a time and glass every inch of cover ahead and to the sides. Most hunters rely on binoculars strictly for long-range work, but good glasses allow you to pick apart heavy cover. Don't look for deer, look for deer parts -- a patch of hair, the tip of an antler tine, the wet glint of a dark eye or black nose. Finally, wear as much camouflage as the law allows, including a face mask or camo paint. That holds for gun hunters, who seem particularly reluctant to wear face masks.
