Late Season Strategies

Late season here in 2Dthe finds me in kind of a "rut". Ive been going nonstop since the summer trying to find the right deer. There are plenty around, but at this point in the season, and with this constantly changing weather, im kind of at a loss for what to do next. Ive sat for hours, still hunted when the woods were quiet, we've even done small drives and big drives. I'm just throwing this out there to see if theres anything anyone has found to be succesful late season. The deer here arent highly pressured right now, and theres plenty of them, but they seem to be all bunched up already(which is strange with lack of pressure or the usual warlike atmosphere ive seen in the past) i have off tomorrow and plan on being in the woods from sun up to sundown. Someone has to have the secret recipe out there right? Where did my big boys go and when and where will I find them on their feet?

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. Churchill

Re: Late Season Strategies

The big boys are holed up in some unusual but not necessarily out of the way places. Think out of the box.
I admire them by how they can "hide" without really hiding at all. They are watching us and they know where we are and where we go. Don't go there.

Re: Late Season Strategies

I would still hunt very slowly and cover quite a bit of
ground over the course of the day.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

I'm forced to try that one myself, George, but perhaps for different reasons. I suffered most of the first week with a head cold that is now in my chest and has turned into bronchitis, so I'm probably done for rifle season. Hopefully I will be able to get out during flintlock. I still have an antlerless tag left for 4A, and then in January, bobcat season opens! Hope springs eternal, or somesuch?

Re: Late Season Strategies

Take care of that bronchitis Mutt. That's nothing to take lightly. Wish you a full and speedy recovery.

Speedbeef,
There's no secret recipe. Find the thickest cover closest to the best food source in the area. Hunt in the cover on the downwind side.

Be careful....last year for the opener of rifle season I was in the same circumstance. Then I went to the doc (AGAIN) and was diagnosed with pneumonia.
