For hunters looking to bag a trophy, be sure to look for areas that have received little disturbance since mid-season and in secluded feeding areas.
Areas that have had little to no hunting pressure are prime late-season hunting hot spots.
If you have set blinds, stands or areas that you or others typically hunt in your area, get away from them!
Deer pattern people as much or more than people pattern deer.
Mature whitetail bucks know the weak spots in your “normal”
game plan. They can walk across a property without being
spotted, even if it means going across a wide open field where
he knows you are not.
Consider hunting untraditional areas at untraditional times, especially during a full moon.
During a full moon, deer move more during mid-day, and you
might just surprise 'ole big boy!
