look on the side of trees bout 3 ft up for rubbed off bark the fresher the better.(rubs).next look for circles of pawed dirt in an otherwise leave covered area get close and smell if it smells funky (scrape) the trifecta is a rub with a scrape with a low overhanging brach thats been nibbled on (licking branch)deer pellets, want to impress your friends when you find some pop a few raisenetts in your mouth chew them and look wistfull and say wow good deer these are fresh from a monster buck.never fails to get a laugh.and drum roll please the number 1 deer sign to look for is .......................A DEER

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
