    Best time of the yr in my opinion to scout for next yr is right after this season ends. Scrapes and rubs are still visible . Bedding areas and travel routes used this time of yr can be found especially if you have snow. I personally think the intel you gather right after season is way more valuable than preseason scouting.

    @Chuck that’s kinda what I was thinking. I’m glad to know my instincts are on the right track.

    Do your best to study their patterns even though your not out there hunting.

    If you have a snow make sure and get out and make some waypoints on trails. Especially intersecting ones. You can also make waypoints on rubs and scrapes. I use on x hunt app.
