Charles A predicted Nov 10-18th as the best week to be in the woods. From our perspective:
Nov 3-6 was very hot - probably our best days. One of our group actually saw a doe be bred on 11/3 so we had some does go in early. We had encounters every day on large bucks.
The snow storm and related cold weather shut it down 11/8-11/9. The deer were moving hard during the snow storm but once it got cold, the woods got very noisy and the deer shutdown.
11/11-11/15 was also very productive in our area. We saw another doe being bred on the 12th.
Gun season there was chasing by small bucks but very few big bucks were involved. I would guess they were locked down. A friend down by Wild Rose saw a big buck bred a doe opening morning. The buck finished the job and is now at the taxidermist.
I think Charles prediction was somewhat accurate. If we would not have had the snow storm, I wonder if the 3rd -10th would have been the best. It seems like the 2nd-10th is always the best in NE Wisconsin?
