How to find big bucks is the first question on many hunters’ minds, but that process needs to start with those four factors first. It’s not about walking into the woods, throwing up some trail cameras and hoping to catch a glimpse of the bucks in the area. Focus on identifying where the food, does, cover and safety are located instead. That means not getting discouraged when a few does come through on your trail cam instead of Mr. Big. That’s evidence that you can match to a bigger picture.
This approach works even in public land hunts, where scouting opportunities ahead of time can be limited. Go to where the deer feel safe, such as protected pockets away from other hunters or areas difficult to reach. When everyone looks left, go right, so to speak.
