I manipulated the stand to be able to see my mineral block and the worn deer trail. With the branches trimmed for a clear path, I climbed down. Next, I took the rake and headed to the overgrown thicket and began to tear up the ground. This was how deer marked their territory and I had created a mock scrape in

    There is no better place to be on a below freezing January day than out in the timber somewhere hunting ducks. As I get out of the truck, the smell of a swamp instantly hits my nose and I can now see the clear sheet of ice lying perfectly across the water. The place that I always go hunting at is way out in the country, miles away from city limits. There are no streetlights or sounds of cars passing by.
