Hi Guys, Haven't posted in a while but been keeping an eye on things here. Just wanted to share a photo of my buck I killed yesterday on opening day of rifle season. I never saw this buck before yesterday. Blessed to have gotten him. Kevin
Thanks prhunter and TN, I killed him with my 300 wsm I just received last week from Red Hawk Rifles. I had it sighted dead on at 200 yds. and knew where it was hitting out to 400 yds. I killed the buck at 60 yards .

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...
