Which day to hunt?

4 posts in this topic

I can hunt all day one of these two days. Next Wednesday, the 5th, which the forecast I read today calls for clouds with possible rain and a high of 56 with winds from 15-30 MPH or Thursday, the 6th, which calls for a high of 47 with rain and winds from 20-40 mph. Both days look pretty windy but I am leaning toward Wed. What do you guys think?

I would wait as long as I could before making my decision. There's a good chance the forcast will change. Right now it looks to be a toss up.

The bucks have a good chance of being on the major chase by then, so I don't know if rain/wind will be as much of a factor on them moving about at anytime. But based on that forcecast I'd take Wed. Also, if you have a late shot that night you may have to take the following morning for recon and have a good excuse to stay and hunt the afternoon. Then the next is Friday and well why bother going back for one day and spoil a great 5 day weekend of rut hunting. Just a thought anyway wink

I like that idea.

Hopefully like said before the weather may change, it is a week away yet. Maybe I can swindle both days somehow. Thats is up to the boss (wife).

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
