Pork or Venison? Is it too much to ask for both?
Winter finally arrived for a day or two in my part of the country yesterday. I’m glad it did too. Climbing into tree stands with 80 degree weather can get quite sweaty at my age, and weight.
This time of hunting season is magical to me. With just about 30 days left in deer season for most of us, time is running out. Fast.
The next few weeks will be filled with work, last minute business meetings, shopping, family outings, and the most important thing…..honey do’s. Somewhere in between you’re going to have to find time to hunt. If you haven’t tagged out yet, then you’re going to have to find ALOT of time to hunt. Working it all in in 3 weeks is a real trick.
When you’re in the field this month things get pretty good. Animals move, the moon is “right” and the all dreaded acorn has been consumed by every living creature in the woods. This can be a great combination.
Check your feeder, verify feed times and compare that to your game cam. Deer (and hogs) will visit your feed station when they feel like it. Just make sure your feeder timer is set to maximize the time they spend there waiting for you. That doesn’t mean more corn, just make your timing a little more accurate. Most of us reset our timers after the time change…..and leave it. Double check it according to your game camera.
Hogs and deer are moving more regular on my game cameras now that the acorns have been gobbled up. This means more opportunity for shots. Make sure you get the most out of your time in the field. Double check your stand, feeder, battery, chargers, and game camera. Only 30 days (give or take) left. You don’t want to blow it.
Working diligently on your mental game and focusing on what the animals are searching for this time of year will make a big difference in your success rate.
