Has anyone tried this? For guys that hunt on large properties and usually you have the woods to yourselves through the season. Leaving certain sections of land off limits for the sole purpose of still hunting. I tried this and it works. I will hunt from my stand in a deep valley for a few days, leaving the other 100 acres alone. Then the ground pounding begins.
Especially draws and valleys and places unknown to man, because I know after opening weekend of rifle season, deer are going to areas where people won't go and hunt. Even right up behind my house, deer will take refuge when the pressure is on. Seems unconventional, but thats what still hunting is all about. Thinking outside the box. Finding areas untouched by hunters, even if its out behind the barn. Dont be afraid to poke around in odd areas. find that patch of timber out in the middle of a cut corn field and check it out. Brushy fencelines too. Go into the wind and take your time.
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.
