Can anyone give me some advice on hunting ottis pike in january special season? Scout the deer, wait for it. What does it look like over there? Any input i would appreciate... anything at all.. they gave me spot 49 by north street.. Thanks
Go to the Ridge check station and ask for a hiking permit,then between now and begining of the January hunt you can scout the property and learn the lay of the land as long as nobody is hunting there. They will probably give you a temporary permit ,then you can apply for a regular one which is good for 3 years then you can scout other properties prior to hunting season. Good Luck!
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...
