We hear it all the time–mature bucks are all bedding in the swamp. Well, maybe. But they’re not just going to lay down in a puddle of muck if they don’t have to. On small properties where every acre matters, it’s imperative we make our swamps prime habitat rather than just hoping or assuming they’re good for bucks. Security is the most important bedding ingredient for mature bucks. To make a 5-star buck bed in the swamp we also want them to have food and a comfortable spot to lay down.
