In this video Jake Ehlinger from Habitat Solutions and I demonstrate how to make a hinge cut bedding spot for a buck in just a few minutes. Step one is to identify a spot. In this case it is a raised spot in the swamp that will stay high and dry year around, and has a view of a hinge cut bedding spot for does we made earlier. Next, we hinge cut larger trees next to the mound, and then hinge cut or pulled smaller trees down and tied them off with parachute cord. This creates overhead cover and lateral horizontal cover to make the buck feel more secure. We make several of these buck bedding spots for each doe bedding spot so that a buck will use the area under any wind or weather conditions.
