How will you hunt the late season?

Just wondering how everyone will be hunting with your flintlocks; still hunting, sitting (on the ground), sitting (in a tree stand), putting on drives. I'll be sitting on the ground most of the time. I won't be hunting out of my tree stands because they don't have shooting rails and I need a steady rest to shoot my Hawken.

a little stump hunting, a little still hunting then finish up with a crew of great HPA guys driving deer.

For those who fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know.

Re: How will you hunt the late season?

Depends on the weather. At dawn and dusk I'll be between the food and the cover. During the day a little still hunting if the wind is in my favor. We have a bunch of guys that hunt late rabbit (me included) as they push the thick stuff I like to get between them and some escape routes the deer use to see if I can catch them sneaking away from all the ruckus.......whatever I do it will be better than work and I'll enjoy it. Good Luck to all and be safe!

Re: How will you hunt the late season?

most likely all small drives with a few guys...

want to try to attempt some still hunting if we get a nice fresh snow...

doubt i'll ever sit in my stand...after the rifle season, youd be hard pressed to see a deer from a stand unless you had a hot food source and unpressured deer...which with rifle still in here, that aint gunna happen..
