Monday Opener - The Old Spot Might Not Work

Just a heads up, with the lack of mast over large parts of the state, the old reliable stump might not pay off Monday.

I know in the areas I hunt, mast is less than spotty. I is darn near impossible to find. If you do find it, you find evidence of a once ago crop, already eaten.

Be thinking fall back spots and adapt if required. Find the food and find the deer. I have six in mind now based on archery season and the archery bear and rifle season. That is again based on not seeing deer where we have in years past.

There is also the old reliable still hunting. Cover ground and find the deer the old fashioned way.

Just a heads up for those that might not have had a lot of time to scout.

On the other hand, the GL I hunted does have deer. Just hard to discern any pattern to their movement. Of course, that exempts the forward leaning, white tail up, going away movement...

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Very true. There are NO acorns are all up here this year and most of the corn has been cut. Look for productive apple orchards and beech stands as there was a good crop this year.

Acorns are non existant in the places I hunt this year. When I'm in the mountains I'll be hunting Beech stands this year.

My area is just the oposite, too much food. Corn still standing, soy beans not picked yet, apples and acorns galore. Plus all the green grass and feeding patterns are a hit and miss . Unless you bump one up it will be rough. To many protectd areas with no pressure.
