Strategy: Hang and hint down wind of bedding


On 11/6 I Hung my set in the evening down wind of a known doe bedding area with no deer sightings. Very slow deer movement today, well that is saying it nicely. I got skunked on the sit.

I decided to leave my stand in the woods along with my bow, pack etc. And sneak back in the AM to try again. I got into the stand on 11/7 30 minutes prior to daylight and sat until 10 AM without seeing a deer.

I pulled the set and made my way out of the woods. Frustrated by the lack ov movement, I knew I needed a new strstegy going forward.

More to come:

Afflicted with Whitetail OCD, I have been addicted to the Whitetail Deer since the late 1980s. It is an all-consuming and never-ending passion to learn about and ultimately preserve the heritage of whitetail deer hunting. Now I feed that addiction with the Whitetail OCD blog.
