can't think of any books or DVD's/Tapes.. All I can do to help would be tell you to.

Walk your area and look for Rubs, scrapes, foods, dropings, tracks, and DEER themselves. When you find trails mark them on a map and also take some sewing tread... this way you can tie the tread across the trail and when you come back to that area you look to see if the string is broken and the way the string is laying will tell you which way the deer are moving. I hope this helps

Matty said it better then me... I guess I should have put it the Matty did. But You could do a fast scout in and out real quick. Narrow down key spots, then scout from a far. Like Matty & I said Food & Water would be the first 2 things to find.... Then bedding. As the season goes on, try and look for the other key areas, Like Breeding areas, Scrapes/Rubs.

With these 3 major areas can put you in bow range of many deer. This Tuesday I will be out scouting with BHC, on one of my spots. Don't let anyone tell you "It's to late to scout" or " You can't scout now it is to early" Hog Wash.... I scout 365days. You need to know how they move all the time, Summer will be the same as Fall, as in movements. Come Permit Bow they start to Move in to the rut and taking different trails, Looking for DOEs. After 6-day (gun season) the deer change again. This is there Late winter patterns, buck's now looking for food and the late rut. ( Yes there is 2 rut's in one Year)Early Spring, Birthing areas. One key spot most don't look for. If you are lucky anuff to find this place PUT IT ON THE MAP.

I always check myself when scouting and good bug juice works too. Bug be gone think thats the name from Avon skin-so-soft is good. Also when I get home I have my wife check me out too. I'll have her do it till Late in the winter when it's to cold for me to go out.
