I'd like to get your input on where you've found buck beds in open farm country. The area I hunt has rolling hills in some areas, with a few small woodlots scattered in various places, along with several drainages (with limited cover) and some CRP. It's almost impossible to get into the interiors of those wooded areas without getting busted. The beds that I have found, or the places where my fiend and I have actually seen/jumped bedded bucks often times have several things in common. (1) Most of the time they are situated in such a way where they have a great field of vision- either onto crop fields below or in such a way as they can see does coming out of their bedding areas. (2) They are sometimes situated on the down wind side of doe bedding areas. Normally several hundred yards away. (3) Almost none of these are located within the wooded areas but in various spots such as the upper areas of a grassy hillside, a finger of standing corn, an area where the farmer piled up a bunch of trees, a dead fall near the top of a rolling hill, a wooded fence line and a small patch of tall grass. It's been challenging for me to close the deal on these bucks since the cover is so limited and you can only get so close without getting busted. I'm trying to get in as close as I can so I get a chance during legal shooting light and I think I really need to concentrate on the conditions and times of the year where I know they would be using those beds. Because of the limited cover, most of the mature buck movement I've seen, even during the rut has been within areas of cover and rarely out in the picked corn fields until just before dark. For this reason, last year and this year, I'm going to try to stay within cover where I've seen them move before. These areas are within CRP corridors, a travel corridor through a narrow strip of cedars and a small strip of cover along a small drainage. Where have you guys found buck beds in this type of farm country and how do you hunt them?
