If they're in the vicinity and you're on stand maybe 1hr before daylight you could hear them yipping and howling. I don't know if they're regrouping from the nights hunt or what but they're loud. Also, right around sunset or after it they will yip and howl too. If there's a fire company close by and the siren blasts listen closely because that normally sets them off. The only time I've ever found dens were near creek/stream beds in the banks (slight incline). Be careful if you do find a den because these suckers have a nose just as good or even BETTER than a whitetail and they will relocate quickly and never use that area again.
