Early season concerns?
« on: June 11, 2013, 05:30:00 PM »
How do ya'll handle the early season if it is dry and hot? Best time to be out if the deer aren't moving much due to heat?

Although I didn't get to hunt last year, I know they closed a lot of areas to hunting due to fire danger so, where would one go to maximize his hunting experience?   :help:

Public land is never closed due to fire danger. Im going to sit in treestands overlooking several different wallows that get clobbered the first week of September. Then do some ground pounding the last two weeks if necessary.

The early season is for elk, the late season is for blacktail's!     :readit:     :saywhat:     :archer:

The mountain behind my house just got closed for fire season.  This is the first time they have done this.  I can stand in my yard and scope the local elk herd moving all over the face of the mountain, but they are now off limits.  So I contacted the owner of the neighboring ranch and got permission to hunt their woods that border themountain and fields of feed corn.  Early in the season last year the elk were raiding the feed corn at night and moving back over the mountain in the morning.  hopefully I'll be able to ambush one in the woods before they get tothe timber land.  But it made me change my original plan of hitting them when the came into the open on the mountain.  last year within a week of season opening, the pressure drove the herd deeper into the timber land, which is now off limits.
