2. Take a Spin
It's easy to get so wrapped up in scouting your land that you neglect to consider what's happening on adjacent properties. That's a huge mistake, since what lies beyond those fences can dictate much of the deer movement in your area. Drive the perimeter of your hunt zone. Glass ridges, draws, creeks and fences that run off the surrounding properties onto your spot. Travel corridors that lead to and from crop fields should really catch your eye. A week before gun season, scout those funnels on your side of the fence. If you find fresh tracks, set up for a buck that is feeding, chasing does or fleeing pressure.
