Additional Information: Instructed by:
Have you ever wanted to learn how to scout for deer sign, but just not sure how to get started? Or how do you know where’s the best place to put your deer stand or hunting blind when deer season arrives? Late winter and early spring are great times of the year to be out in the woods scouting for deer sign in preparation for next deer season. With no foliage on the trees and the ground usually wet, you can easily find deer sign such as tracks, deer droppings, rubs, bedding areas and even old scrapes. The sign you find this time of the year can reveal a lot about deer movement and habits that will give you a “head start” for the upcoming season in the fall. It’s also a great time of the year to find deer sheds (dropped antlers) and see the sign of other wildlife while you look for deer sign. This program is designed for the person with little experience and wants to learn how to scout for deer sign. It’s not just for the beginning deer hunter though, it can also be for other wildlife enthusiasts such as photographers, hikers or folks who just enjoy being outdoors and like looking for clues of what wildlife might be living in the area. The program is virtual, but registration is required. Please include an email address so the link to join the program can be emailed to you. All participants will be emailed the link the day of the program. Date and Times: February 16, 2023 6:00pm to 7:30pm Location: Virtual Age: 12 and older CONRAD L MALLADY
