Does no one else hunt Blacktail? Cause this forum is DEAD!!!
I went out scouting the other day saw 4 deer total 2 of them bucks! The weird thing was he was blowing and grunting as if he was in the rut!?!?!
Ive been out elk hunting all week and have seen quite a few good looking bucks, I have also seen quite a few other hunters out there. Not too many out on foot which is a good thing for me. The weather here has been pretty bad the last week so hopefully it will clear up a little for the weekend, that way theyll come out a little more.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
