Gander Mountain is nice enough to provide us with periodic hunting and fishing tips. This week, they offer a tip on how to create a new trail for deer.
When deer consistently move by your stand out of range, you can often divert the deer by placing some nearby deadfalls over the existing trail. Then create a new trail leading to your stand area, adding some deer scent with a drag. One of the keys is to wear rubber gloves and boots. You don’t want to leave your scent anywhere. Disturbing the terrain is actually quite natural, as storms come through, leaves fall, branches break and the overall forest changes daily.
