Help please...?!

9 posts in this topic

Alrighty guys and gals im in a dilema. i have two spots that i can go to archery hunt that i know there is a good possibility of pulling a nice buck or a nice doe out of. one of the spots i dont have a stand and i sit on a stump and the ohter spot i have four stands that are pretty perminant. The other night i was at the spot sitting on the stump and i saw a nice doe but didnt have a clear shot so i let it by. and today my dad and i went to the other spot and found huge buck tracks and a lot of doe tracks that are fresh. so i guess my question is, with the weather gunna be cold tomorrow morning and what not where do i go because i think the bucks at both spots come by in the morning?!

I think you think to much.

Play the wind as well as your gut and you will do fine. But mostly play the wind.

After you've got the wind figured out, which spot has the best eats for them? When the weather turns colder, they need extra food to stay warm. That's where you'll find the does and the bucks will be right behind them.

Agree with all the others, play the wind!.. Dont hunt a stand just because you think its better, if you get busted, you could ruin that stand for a while?..

My theory is the wind should #1 dictate which stand to sit in and #2 where the food source is, #3 inconjunction to bedding area.

Start with #1 and don't over think the process!!!!

i agree with you all but other than the wind i think he has to look at where these deer are in the morning. I have numerous spots where i know deer are in the morning but the problem is being able to get into the spot without spooking the deer. So yes play the wind, but also look at how easily you are able to get into the set without spooking deer

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
