Favorite terrain to look for on public land

Post by Parkersdad on Wed Jul 26, 2017 9:43 am

Just curious what type of country do you hunt and what is your favorite type of terrain to look for? Mine is more mountainous and I look for a bowl or a flat ledge on a steep hillside that the deer like to cross.

I like to look for pinch points between bedding a feeding.  Easier to find when I hunt the Midwest.  When I hunt here in Louisiana in a big woods setting it takes more boots on the ground work to find these locations.

I'm kind of partial to swamps myself.

Here in the pineywoods I look for creeks and hardwoods. That is the big part of the puzzle, then their bedding nearby....

I look for super dense and thick areas for my morning hunts with the intent to beat the deer to there beds. I like to find an area where I can only see maybe 60 yards or so clearly. I figure if it's nice and thick then the deer will come there for protection, especially on public land. Then in the evenings I try to hunt somewhere on the downwind side of a really dense and thick area; preferably along a good trail or something like that.

l prefer the marsh/swamp areas that transition to thickets or oak knolls. In the mountainous regions its saddles that have a pinch point coming up from a laurel draw or a small oak bowl surrounded by laurel.
