Anyone who hunts understands that two of the foundation principles to success is understanding your quarry completely and understanding the terrain you will be facing and how to use it to your advantage.
This is particularly true if you are hunting in unfamiliar territory.
Knowing where deer are most likely to feed, bed and congregate is key to making sure you can narrow down your options not only to avoid wasting time but to make sure when you do get a kill shot, your lines of sight are clear.
The only way to do that is to scout the territory beforehand and locate jumps, pathways, deer yards, water, and food sources.
