Deer season is over, and it's time to look toward next fall and winter. Deer hunters who consistently experience success don't merely get lucky. They put in the time and effort it takes to fill tags each year. More specifically, they spend time postseason scouting for deer.

February is an excellent time to complete such efforts, mostly because you no longer need to worry about pressuring deer. Some bucks made it through the season, and now is a great window to learn as much about them and their core areas as possible. It's time to put the pieces of the puzzle together, so you have a clearer picture of your hunting areas and target bucks next season.
