3. Finally, Mike Bleech brought up an interesting observation about reading deer sign when he pointed to a trusted source who feels that mature bucks in his region typically leave tracks that are rounded at the tip. I've not noticed this phenomenon in my region of the Midwest, but I certainly believe that it could be true. But the message here is clear; study deer sign for details, and try to make accurate, non-biased conclusions about what your experience reveals. Even if those details don't result immediately in venison or antlers, they can offer a better understanding of whitetail behavior in your region…and that most certainly will result in more consistent success.
