    Thanks Holt! Our bow season starts up September 15th! Weather has been cooling down now into the 60's...so ready to get up in the stand again!

    What is everyone going to be (or already are) hunting over? This is one of my primary spots. Combination of cannimaize (67 day corn), soybeans, clover/chicory/alfalfa plot, and brassica/turnip/radish plot.

    For me this year I'm mostly hunting big woods. Just trying to find oaks and hunting the acorn crop. Then come rut, I will hunt the doe bedding.

    Ive went to mostly clover and corn for my plots. Since ive gotten older and busier I have had to cut way back on fall plots. I still spread some buck oats or rye in places that the deer have eaten all my crops. Last weekend I got in the timber and did some scouting. Looks like there is a lot of acorns already on the ground and a lot more to come. So Im going to assume we will hunt in the timber quite a bit to start off the season.

    I would say that I hunt topography more than anything else. I plant a pile of food plots, but rarely use them myself, and the area I hunt is overwhelmingly covered in hard mast. Best chance a person has is to find those good travel corridors here.

    One of my best spots is where a finger ridge falls off of a main ridge. The next closest finger ridge down the ridge ends in a bluff, and above me is the steeper slopes of the mountain. Funnels deer right into where I am because they typically will bed somewhere on the ridges, but the bottom is where the white oaks are at in this location.

    Definitely some great deer!
    Do you work for the state DNR? I'm in the wildlife side in oklahoma, but there are a few of our fisheries jobs that are really tempting

    I don’t have any food plots on the small chunk of land I have permission to hunt. I’ve been thinking about doing one next year if I get permission from the land owner. Usually I hunt travel corridors to the alfalfa field the butts up against the property I hunt.

    I work for a private management firm (Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource), but definitely work closely with the WIDNR for our lake projects.

    Good luck holt! Living vicariously though you... impatiently waiting on 10/1 here. And it'll still probably be high in the low 90s then...

    I'm little on the fence about hunting this week. I leave in a week for Colorado and not sure I want to mess with a deer before I go. Early season is my favorite time to hunt, so I may be very selective this week. But if a doe gives me a perfect shot, don't know I will hold back! Haha

    Same here. Except the 90 degree temp. Will probably still be in the 70’s though
