Flinter hunting method

how will everyone be doing it this year? drives? spot stalk? still hunt? or treestand?....ill be doing all but the drives are the most fun for me. we have drives that when i get to a certain point i think i should have heard a shot by now...and usually a few seconds later ker pow.....nothing like a successful drive in the late season.

take a kid hunting and fishing it will keep them out of trouble

We usually sit in the morning and evening but most of our shots on drives.

Some drives some days. Still hunt mornings til around 12:30-1:00 and then get some lunch and a quick break. Into the blinds at 3:00 til dark. I think with this arctic blast coming in the deer are gonna be up and on their feet throughout the day feeding and with the snow it should make for some great still hunting oppurtunities.

Tree stand in the morning for me and my son. Some still hunting during the day. If my son is not with me, I think still hunting for most of the day.

I like to still hunt with snow camo in fresh snow. Problem is fresh snow seems to be a rarity in this corner of the state.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Majority of time Its stands between feeding and bedding areas....some as simple as just leaning against a tree. Some still hunting-last year I walked up within 25 yds of an 8 rubbing a sapling but didnt have a buck tag so I just watched him for 15 mins till he finished and walked away. Would like to do drives but dont have the crew to do them.

Only harvested three and missed a few, but two were harvested while walking and the other from a stand by pressure from others.Drives are fun and almost the only way to get action at times.My experience is they are bedded before light a lot and move at almost dark a lot of days, but have experienced seeing them on there feet late morning or afternoon on very cold days feeding.Weather dictates a lot.Location and prior season pressures.

Ill sit for the first hour or two. Then slow hunt till I come up on a good place to stop a while. Do that most of the day. Then post up again for the last couple hours till dark. But around 1100 or so I like to build a fire, heat up soup or broth, roast a sausage or two on a good roll. Then a coffee. A hot meal is worth the time and I like doing it.
