    I have found that deer have many bedding areas, some are hot some are not. ONly way to find out is to sit and wait. I have found 5 areas, 4 of the 5 are only used every now and then the other one is used every day all day.

    It really depends on where you're located. Deer, especially mature bucks, will bed in different locations based on wind direction, thermals, weather, etc, etc.

    Try hunting it. You never know. Worst case, you'll learn when he isn't using that bed.

    depends...

    I have found a few bedding areas where id say deer use them more then 50% of the time. These are thick, safe areas with easy escape routes and good terrain to use in their advantage.

    Where as today when I took a walk...you find random beds. I kicked up a few deer up that seemed to be bedded at random...open areas. no thick cover. just taking a break perhaps.

    If you have good track moving through the area id say give it a sit or two..
    To fish or not to fish...what a stupid question
