Find the Bedroom

When I speak of a deer’s bedroom, I don’t necessarily mean where a deer sleeps. What I’m talking about here is areas where breeding occurs. I’m looking for areas with thick brush or with young trees close together. The doe, with her smaller frame and lack of antlers can easily out maneuver an amorous buck in such places. She picks where and when the breeding occurs.

Remember a buck doesn’t like to force his antlers through branches bigger than your thumb. Being able to get a good shot in the thick stuff can be hard to impossible. Don’t set up and hide where you can only see a few yards out. You’re going to be better off setting up on the downwind edge of these bedrooms where visibility is better..
