Doe down opening morning about 0700. First deer with my bow and first deer in opening day. Off season scouting is the reason. Get out there and scout!

Is now a good time to start scouting for deer? What time of year is a good time to begin scouting for bow hunting. I am planning to dedicate most of my hunting time to bow hunting this year. Does anyone have any tips/advice?
Anytime in the woods scouting is a good time. The woods are really think right now. Stick to habitat transitions and feed trees. Good luck

Came across this while squirrel hunting. Wasn't sure exactly if it was a hog track or might have been a deer on the move. The toe of the track looks rounded to me so I assumed it might have been a very large hog. What do yall think?
