If you’re a deer hunter, the early archery season can be tough sometimes because bucks are transitioning from their summer bachelor groups or maybe are already in their autumn areas getting settled.
Sometimes that’s a tough period because you’re in that in-between zone. You saw bucks during summer on camera but now they’re gone, or maybe are showing up infrequently and at strange times. Or maybe you’re dialed in like a boss and have one or two on your list to pursue.
Join Dan Schmidt from Deer & Deer Hunting and Chris Jorde of Heart J Outfitters in North Dakota on Deer Talk Now as they discuss the best tips for hunting mature bucks in the early archery season.
Also, Dan and Chris answer your other questions:
1. Can I have too many stands on my property?
2. What should I do if I don’t have trees suitable for hanging tree stands?
3. What are the keys to placing and hunting from ground blinds?
4. How do I go about locating a mature buck’s preferred bedding area?
5. Will trail cameras spook deer out of their bedding areas?
6. What should I plant to attract deer in the early season?
