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

I wasn't planning on trying to actually hunt in the bedding areas. I was going to use the info of typical bedding places to try to formulate a plan. Obviously trails can be found by tracks and turds on the ground. I was wondering about bedding areas more for the scouting time. If I can find where they eat and have an idea of where they sleep, I can make a better decision on where to set my stand, which way to walk in from and all that good stuff. I am a novice, so if I am not making sense, please let me know. Sometimes I tend to over analyze things too.

By the way Malnikoff, thanks for the invite. I plan on being a member here for a long time to come, so maybe I will eventually get up to WV. If I do, I will definitely let you know and would be honored to learn everything I can from you. I'm just a young buck trying to get some experience.

Sure thing, one of the great treasures of a hunt is sharing it.

If you came here looking for real advice that you can apply, boy did you come to the wrong place. These jokers dont know anything.

Lol. In all seriousness they seem to know almost everything. If you have a question, its most likley already been discussed thoroughly. If you cant find an answer, ask, and it will be discussed thoroughly :D.

Good Luck and come back from the sandbox in one peice. HUA

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

I just started hunting October 2008. The problem I have run across is not finding the deer, because there are far too many in my neck of the woods, but actually shooting them. I am sure you have that part down being that you are an active military member. I finally got my sights set, worked on my breathing, and did a lot of target shooting. I have dropped nine so far. I would say find a plot of land that has a good food source for starts. Get out in the field before the season starts and do some investigating. I like to drive around at night a bit before the season starts to see what is out there. Try to find a hunting partner in your home turf. I learned what little bit I know from my brother in law who is a farmer. I hope this helps at least a little bit. I am still new at this too so I don't really have to much to offer. Thanks for all that you do and happy hunting.
