The way this spot is set up i feel like its for sure a day time thing. The article posted sounds exactly like this spot, there are scrapes and everything, there isnt enough food there for it to be a too desirable feeding area but i guess i could be wrong. I know i got there too late also

From what I have seen,Deer prefer ridgetops at night and thickets during the day.

Yes. Deer often bed on open ridges and in open fields. It isn't all about hiding.
Very true. In fact for south eastern states in general, bedding areas really don't exist in the same way they are in northern or Midwest states. Deer in TN can and will bed in different spots all the time. To prove this just put a camera up on what you believe to be a bedding area. I highly doubt you get any deer bedding back in that spot/area. They simply had recently bed there and you happened to come across it. Camera won't miss lead you, simple test to do if you have a good camera. There are rare situations to this rule and can find some areas that will have consistent bedding areas but very small percentage per deer habitat in TN.

Matt-here are a couple things you are not considering. First that article may have been written about a place that does not even exist. He wrote an article. Needed an example so, he made one up. Happens all the time.

Second, if it does exist, consider where it is. It is not TN and that makes a huge difference.

However, if youbelieve that to be a midday bedding area, just go hunt it midday and find out.

It aint rocket surgery.

Your right bowriter, just was brainstorming. Deer do different things in different places, period. This is my first year hunting this area of tn, and it is completly different than east tn. You have general guidelines but even they may differ sometimes. I was worried about blowing the only decent place ive found so far.
