Thanks for the video. I bet this thread will go south eventually however. it won't be long before someone will talk about "he that shall not be named'.

Pretty good video. Anyone who puts that much effort into something deserves to have a nice buck bed there. I would agree, if you can find a "prime location" and build something of that nature, that bed should be occupied. Hopefully not by a big ol' mean doe.

Thanks for posting this. I guess this is how Jim Ward builds buck beds.

Aren't his hinge cuts a little bit high? I thought they were supposed to be about shoulder height?

According to one prominent poster with a large following on this forum, overhead cover is a waste of time.

Did it really take you that long to hear the siren go off??? You better get your ears checked

BTW, no one has ever said that overhead cover is a wast of time.

So sensitive.
I was beginning to believe this was a baiting thread and wqm and foggy were the first ones to the pile.

"Suffice it to say that after years of hinging trees I have inadvertently created all types of "overhead' cover from 3-4' to 10-15' above the ground but thus far I have not found deer using those types of situations." - He that shall not be named

I'm confused. Could this video be a red herring????

Lets try to keep this about the buck bed and not people. This video contains most things that have been discussed on here multiple times but seeing it in a video helps me tie it all together. If anyone has anything to add to a buck bed please do. I plan on trying this in a few places and putting up a black flash camera to see what happens.

Do bucks prefer 1 or 2 pillows?

That bed sure looks like the ones where I jump bucks out of. This bed had a real good one laying in it till he caught my wind from his back and took off out his apparent escape route...he was facing away from the wind too.

This pic is looking sw and it was a nw wind that day.

I would think those Red Cedars with the lower branches at about 3' high would be about the best thing you could have for a bed, even better than a man made one?
Does overhead cover in the form of a hinge cut tree hold as much heat for thermal cover as a RC? I would have to assume a RC has more of a canopy for shade in the summer, not sure about the heat aspect though...?

He sure seemed to like that spot anyways, going back to check it out from a distance next time since I know exactly where its at now.

I would venture to guess a hinge cut would be just as good cause the sun heats up either on the south facing slope just as this one...that is where I find basically all the winter beds...south facing which blocks the north winds.
