I own property adjoining Tippicanoe State Park. Our deer hunting has gone from incredible to poor since these deer slaughters. Im a avid deer hunter and I realize the need for reduction. I think it a joke that their is not an anterless restriction on these problematic plant killing deer. I reside in Illinois, a state where big bucks are allowed to grow thanks to our restrictive 7 day gun and 3 day muzzleloader seasons. Furthermore if deer reduction was done in Illinois, I bet it would be doe only.
What is the point in killing bucks in these state parks? Obviously the director in charge of this reduction campagne has no clue about Conservation.. Just a typical tree hugger. C'mon Indiana join the rest of the big buck states and restrict these nonsense reduction buck slaughters. Jim Powell[/i][/b]
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
