Once you think you've found a good secluded spot, zoom back out a little and look at the surrounding properties. If there are big stretches of timber and heavy cover funneling into your property, you can bet that neighboring bucks will cruise through once the rut starts. Also, as hunting pressure ramps up, deer will travel these security corridors to get to your area (that's why you picked a secluded spot in the first place), Milliken says. But if the area you're looking at is isolated with hardly any surrounding cover funneling into it, you'll have to limit your hunting pressure. The bucks living there now will likely be the only bucks you'll have all season. If you blow them off the place on opening day, your season could be done. The mentioned property in the video above is such a place, so we'll have to be careful with how much pressure we put on it next season.
