For my 13 year old I have taken up deer hunting; we went last year with a friend one time. I just recently got permission to hunt about 300 acres in mid-Tennessee so I didn't get to scout it before today. Part of the land is mostly open (say 20%) and the rest is wooded. Because it would be much harder to get a deer out of the woods, the open area would be 1st choice. However, in spite of many tracks, we sat motionless for 3 hours this am and didn't see a thing. There is a trail with rutting evidence in the woods. What is your experience Buck travelling pre-season and after it starts? Do they go into the woods? Will they ever come out? Anything else will be appreciated.
