late season weather

I have been out everyday this late season archery including the early late season in the melrose unit.I have always noticed that weather has played a role in the deer movement but this year has been one where it has proven to me how much weather impacts the deer movement.I have had little action this last week excluding the one day it rained in lane county.I had seen about an average of 5 deer a day on the sunny days and on the rainy days in the twenty's.we had two weather fronts one in the early late season(melrose unit) and one last week.the first storm blew high winds and lots of rain,I rattled in several small bucks and seen tons of deer,seemed to be everywhere,I had seen probably forty deer and ten of them were bucks including a very large buck I shot right over:( Just curious to other opinions on this subject,I know deer are not ghost how are people seeing and still getting bucks.

late season weather

So today I filled my tag,not the buck I was lookin for in this area but he'll do.today I was not planning on running into to many deer cosidering it was supose to be a clear day,so I got in a spot where there were heavy deer trails and decided to still hunt.after about a half hour after day break I had a mature doe walk out and then a second,then a third and next in line was this buck,it was heavy fog this morning and I belive that it was a big factor in the deer movement.I ended up making a perfect forty yard shot and put this buck down 4x4[/img]

I have found this very true to Usually I have had great luck around the first 24 hour of a storm
