Marc....I'd like to pick your brain a bit about this ground hunting stuff. Anyone else that has questions is more than welcome to chime in also.
So, to begin:
1. I assume that with these "up close and personal" type deer encounters, that you use some sort of face covering. If so, what do you prefer, face paint or a mask/covering of some sort? I've gone back and forth, and most of the time I prefer a camo veil that is attached to the turkey hunter's boonie hat I wear under my shaggie headpiece. I wear glasses, and the veil hides any shine or glare that might come off of them. But it does reduce my shooting range even though I do practice with it on.
2. Like any good stillhunter knows, you need to use the shadows to your advantage. Do you find that certain times of the day help and/or hinder you in being undetected by deer?
3. In regards to lighting conditions, do you have any preference for overcast or sunny days?
Enough picking for now! [;)]
I love overcast days! The sunny days leave your image too stark and deer would prefer to move in overcast days. Their eyes contain many more cones and rods in them making them very sensitive in bright daylight. Overcast days are great for still or location hunting from the ground.
