Not exactly. I choose to hunt only the fringes of land early on. It's like leaving almost all the land as a sanctuary, then the sanctuary decreases the closer it gets to the rut. However, this year, our bow season started September 15th and I still have not made it out yet. It is just so warm still that I have chosen to just dove hunt instead for a while.
I relate to Ohhunter because I am fortunate enough to hunt several areas. This gives me the option of sitting with the absolute perfect wind.
On our main property we hunt mainly the outskirts or closest stands if the wind is right......if the wind is wrong, we don't hunt.
As stated above our season opened on the 12th, we run a good number of cameras on our land and using them to gauge behavior, it doesn't look like we are impacting them yet.
I wish I had your patience to wait, but in the same sense, I sure do enjoy sitting out there watching and observing deer!
