My 2015 hunt will be limited to Thursday-Friday of this week, so obviously I've got my work cut out for me with the forecasted system blowing (literally) through. I started to do some research about hunting tactics in strong wind conditions, and I had to share with you guys an article that actually made me excited to hunt in the wind! http://www.mossyoak.com/our-obsession/blogs/cuzs-corner/2012/11/20/20-years-of-deer-research-on-deer-movement It's a few years old, but the research and findings are definitely interesting. Do you guys think it's true? Anyone out there bag a big buck with 15-20+mph winds? Did you sit and have them come to you, or did you get up and stalk? Good luck out there!
I am going to clear out a couple 1 acre areas for food plots this spring. I have found the best areas for them, with the least amount of big trees. Mostly 6-8 inch maples, probably 25-50 or so in each area. Since I want to make it into a food plot, I would like to get rid of the stumps as well. I plan on leaving all pines, oaks, and large trees standing, and just take any 8 inch or less trees. What is the best way to do this? I was thinking of cutting them off about 4 foot tall, then using my truck to try to yank them out of the ground. Has anyone done that before? Will that work? There will be about 75 that I will need to take out to open the areas up, so burning, or chemical isnt a realistic option. I could rent a stump grinder, but that seems like a lot of work. If needed I can use a buddies skid loader, but it would consist of hauling it 450 miles round trip with a F150, that would be a work out for my truck. I havent cut any of the trees down yet, but I will be doing that in a few weeks, once some of the snow melts, and I can drive back there. Thoughts? What have you done? I dont have access to a bulldozer, nor do I want to rent one.
