Last deer hunt for me

Postby Ohio farms » Sat Jan 21, 2012 5:50 pm

Temps will be in the 40's Sunday so I'll give deer one more try before the cold, cold weather returns. I still have my buck tag burning a hole in my pocket.

We hunted from 2pm till 30 min after sunset. Lots of tracks in the snow, but no deer. Did see a bluebird. The activity seems to be nocturnal now.

Yea I have been noticing the same thing. I had to cut some firewood this last weekend and dropped a few trees..deer tracks all over the downed tops, they where feeding off the buds, but I didn't see one all day long.

Once the gun season is underway, they become a different animal all together. Shadows in the night.

I'd imagine they're all yarded up together too. Seems like during the late season, if you can get on 'em, you'll see a whole herd.
