My best advice? Don’t hunt mediocre sign. If the signs not slapping you in the face?? keep walking. Wear the soles out on them boots if you have to but keep walking and keep looking.
If your major food source is like mine and is oaks. You’ll start to notice most deer trails in oak woods go from tree to tree to tree. these are primary feed trees. remember them, and watch for them to start raining acrons.
Don;t be afraid to get down and go somewhere else. If you’re not sure of your sign, give it an hour or so in the morning to make sure then get down and go find a better place. pay attention when scouting. You should scout like you hunt. last thing you want to do is bumble through and spook everything. take it easy and always find the hottest sign.
