Do you guys target different areas depending on whether you are hunting mature bucks or just out to whack a doe? Are there areas in your hunting spots that seem to lend themselves towards seeing mostly bucks, or mostly does?

I can say I hunt much differant when chasing a buck rather than a doe. Bucks need to be hunted where they live early and where they don't during the rut. Early, I look for rub lines in funnels areas, secluded bedding areas near preferred food sites and just spots where I've seen them. Later, during the rut, I hunt them where I've been seeing does, funnel areas between bedding spots, and 20-30yrds inside wood lines or field edges.

Where ever the does are, the bucks are going to show up eventually.

I may target different areas as the season changes due to the animals changing their fall routines, but I make no preference on gender.

In the areas I hunt you can throw out rub lines, scrapes, and in some cases even trails. After many years of trial and error, all rubs and scrapes tell me is where the bucks WERE.

I am always looking for new stand locations. In over two dozen stand locations this year, there were only a couple that I didn't have a buck walk by and all but one I saw deer out of. The couple that I didn't see a buck out of were stands that for one reason or another I didn't get to spend much time in.

Since I don't shoot does during Archery season I have plenty of does on my property to bring in the bucks during the rut. I hunt over apple trees and red and white oaks. The bucks realy made a lot of scrapes in the apple orchard this year. I have been lucky to bag my Ohio buck the last 17 straight years most with the bow.
