    Quintessential deer spots

    Have been reading a few stories of good keen newbies getting out ,putting in good efforts and it's not unusually for them to post picks of areas that they ask if it's typical deer country . It's easy to forget than unless you been there done that it's very hard to explain where to look . So im talking those areas when you stumble over them you go omg there is going to be a deer here ! Why not have a thread of quintessential deer spots . Keep the gibba jaba to a minimum and let the picks do the explaining ?

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    after that I figure out a position that commands this area in dawn or dusk

    In this case of a small river, a steep bank hard up on one side of the river directed the animals to go lengthwise before they could cut back up the hill - at either end of this steep bank (say 400m long) the tracks tended to concentrate and funnel through.

    the top of this bank was an eroded river terrace some 60m up and there was too much undergrowth to get a clear shot so I went into the wind on dusk and was rewarded with a tender wee yearling for my efforts.
