Scouting with our video cameras show the deer pour into food plots.

Scouting and patterning deer on a property you haven't hunted before takes time! Watch this episode as Adam shares tips for scouting and hunting a property new to you. Plus, we're doing some pre-season scouting here at The Proving Grounds. The Hot Zone fence has produced huge results so we scouted with our video cameras and wanted to share the incredible show as the deer pour into those food plots!

My farm near Branson, MO. My favorite state to hunt besides MO is KS.

Early turkey season and the pre-rut
