Some trails are also teasers. Paths leading to feeding areas can be seasonal, laid down to take advantage of last fall's forage. Better to focus on trails that deer use to get from point A to point B: routes that cross a steep ditch, follow a bench on a hillside, or parallel a brushy fenceline connecting two blocks of timber. Finding buck sign is your winning ticket, most of the time. Field-edge scrapes are easily found, but they are notorious night sign. Scrapes in wooded cover-on logging roads, ridge tops, and saddles-will often be reopened each fall.
