Now is the Time to Start Scouting for Whitetail Deer

Summer is the time to start scouting for whitetail deer to pattern their movements and get an idea of how may bucks are hitting your hunting grounds.

Join Legendary Whitetails and hone your knowledge on simple tips on scouting for whitetail deer. Summer is the time to start to set you up for success this fall.

Those are some simple, yet effective tips for patterning the deer on your hunting property. Sources of water and of course ready sources of mast feed and food plots are where you want to start. Enhance these areas with mineral licks and hang your cameras early and you should be able to get an excellent survey of what those whitetails are up to.

Research has shown that whitetails typically have pretty small ranges, in many cases under one or two square miles if the area has everything they need, so the percentages are very high that what deer you see in the summer will still be around in the fall.

If you are lucky enough to have your own hunting property, or rely on public land, don’t wait until the fall, get out and start scouting this summer.
