Next season ,started today.

      Our deer season ends on February 10th. Small game season ends on March 4th so I use that extra month in the woods to hunt for pigs and do a little post season scouting for the next deer season. Since I don't hunt turkeys, I'm usually not back into the woods until small game season starts again in late September.

      I see no value in knowing summer deer patterns since our archery season doesn't start until mid October. Besides, the late Spring to early Fall warm temps means more chances for dealing with snakes, ticks, chiggers, mosquitos and gnats.

        It's not the patterns I,m looking for,rather it's the specific deer that have survived the seasons and more than likely will be there next season, beats starting out without a clue if a good deer is there

            I always observe any sign I see anytime I am in any woods but I don't go out looking for sign, except, when I am looking for sheds.

              I scout in Feburary and March. You can see a long distance with less tree foliage. ?
