Warm weather cramping your style?

Postby matterhan » Sun Nov 15, 2009 2:51 am

It is for me.  Not too much daytime activity.  Seeing some rubs but not too many scrapes.  I know the deer are there based on trail cams and nighttime spotlighting.  Hunting field edges and staging areas there is little to no deer activity until after shooting hours, then i see some.  With this warm weather will we see a strong secondary rut?  I Hope its cooler for the southern opener.  I really feel that a cold snap will cause a explosion of deer activity.  It has been very discouraging, cheer me up please.

Same here man!
The bucks are rubbing and scraping, but not moving much during the day.
I'm with you. I hope the cold weather will heat up the rut.

Saturday the 14th I saw deer chasing both in the Southern Tier (Hammondsport - Steuben Cty) and up here in Palymra.  I saw ZIP on Sunday though.  It seem like as Charlie sas- When it hits 45-50 degrees they shut down.  I think he's right
Not to mention I'm sweating by the time I get to my stands, and thats never good even packing in my coat to stay cooler.  Definitely have been diggin the cool mornings far more than these warm afternoons!
