    The more I keep scouting the more I realize how hard it is to find a really good spot. Some days I scout for 5 hours I don't find a spot where I would waste a hunt. So in a nutshell, scout harder than you hunt.

    That sounds awesome, does it cost to use?

    Is it an area that produces big bucks? is the public parcel terrain rolling hills? does the public parcel have farmland? is it a really big place for yearling buck harvest for gun hunters? All those answers will tell you if that areas got nice bucks year after year.

    What virginiashadow said, the harder you scout the better. With big parcels bottlenecks are key IMO, anything to constrict deer movement. If you don't have a lot of time, pick an area, say 300 acres for now, and learn it intimately. Avoid deep woods, hunters migrate to deep areas(you know, the whole "go deeper than the next guy") and it's a load of crap, stay near the edges.

    Hard scouting doesn't tell you if that areas got a big buck. You could be scouting and all you saw is a yearling buck, a doe and got pics of a yearling bucks and does . Size, terrain and if the areas for farmland are the main keys if that parcels got big bucks roaming around year after year. If its all big woods. Lots of scouting, more hit or misses if there's a big buck there or not and try not getting lost.

    I don't want to give away to much information about the spot but I know forsure there are big deer there, and I've even had someone I trust show me a couple good places to start. But I just wanted to know what you guys look for when you go out so that while I'm scouting the areas I've been told about I have a better idea of what to look for and where to set yp
