How many of us gun hunters believe that the statewide youth gun hunt effected the statewide gun season? Did the state schedule the youth too close to opening day? I like what ODOW did, but I think it could of been scheduled a bit different
to continue, I heard some complaints that the deer just were not there, but you have to factor in opening day, there was a pretty stiff wind all day, I hunted Ohio Power lands SW of Cambridge, and the deer just wernt there, like it was 2 weekends earlier when we scouted, and saw over 150 deer in about 6 hours, with over 3/4 of them in gun range, the quality of deer we saw was exceptional, actually more bucks than does,
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
