Whether it’s deer, bear, elk, coyotes, or whatever it is your targeting, it’s also fun to see what other animals come around the area you are hunting, like mountain lions. For the animals you are targeting, it’s a great way to see when they migrate along certain trails, whether it’s to get food, water, or switching their bedding spots during the middle of the day.
