I've been keeping a deer cam record of all the deer movement by my stand. and none of it is during legal hunting times.
I hunt by some apple trees so deer are always there.....but not during legal hunting times...
Does anyone have any trick to lure them back during the early light when i can actually hunt?
I got to my stand around 5am.....i spook the deer when i get there on the way in, but they often come back and keep eating after I'm settled. yesterday i sat 15yds away from a nice 10pt buck for almost an hour, listening to him eat apples off the ground. Then at about 6:20 he just walked off, walking within spitting distance of me.
sunrise is 7:28am...so i can hunt at 6:58.
should i grunt like a buck?...bleat like a doe? rattle (tried that a lil yesterday after he left, but he didn't come back)?
I have a high buck to doe ratio in my area and there are a few nicer ones.....I'd like tog et at least one!
any ideas or suggestions are welcomed.....I'm kinda stumped.
