Using your binoculars for acorn scouting can be a great tool to be ready for the coming deer season, Backwoods Life's Justin Moore explains.

With deer seasons coming across the country, we all find ourselves anxiously waiting to get into our stands and dreaming about the deer we will see.

With deer seasons approaching across the country, we all find ourselves anxiously waiting to get into our stands and dreaming about the deer we will see. We all have been practicing with our
bows, planting food plots and running trail cameras all summer in hopes that will will be able to put us on a good buck this season. Hunting in the South, our seasons tend to be some of the last to open, so
we are still finishing hanging stands and making sure that we are putting them in the best spots, while the Midwest and northern states are already in season.

One thing I like to do when I’m scouting stand locations is to check for oak trees that are full of acorns, primarily looking for big White Oaks, cause our deer down here tend to key in on acorns during the early
season, especially during the morning hunts. I never go to the woods with out my Hawke binoculars! I personally chose the Hawke Nature-Treck 10x50. Oaks don’t put out big bumper crops every year so you
cant always count on normal hot spots to always be on, make sure that you actually check the trees for acorns before you hang stands. Oak flats make for great areas to find deer while they transition from
bed to feeding areas and usually will hold deer in abundance. Also check for soft mass trees...Apple, Pear, Locust, and Persimmon trees are all good places to set up for early season. Use your optics to your advantage and hopefully with some luck, old big boy might stroll by your stand this fall.
