Buck beds have been somewhat controversial over the last few years, with many opinions and viewpoints on effectiveness and how they should be constructed. My personal experience since 2011 is that I wouldn't have a structured hunting program without them. Not only do we have evidence of regular use, but this was the first place the buck I shot in '14 sought refuge. These are the cornerstone to how we have established our property and habitat management plan. In this blog, we break down the anatomy of a buck bed and try to simplify the process.
