what is your best october tactic? there isnt alot of acorns here so thats just about out we had a dry summer and i havent seen two acorns from the same tree. Im not lookin for a traophy deer a doe or a small buck will make me happy.
well i've beenuseing the stalking threw the woods take three steps look then take three more? I 've seen one bigger buck which i shot at 30 steps and missed the i have seen does and fawns in thick cover and shot a pine tree so see a lot of deer and i hunt in northern alberta where's there alot of pressure
The best thing you can do in October is find a trail and sit tight. All I do in September and October is sit in a tree stand near an area I expect the deer to visit or walk by and wait. When November comes then I use estrous scents to try and attract the bucks. If a buck walks down wind of an estrous scent at this time of the year he will most likely come in to check it out.
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
