I have found that they will stay in the same general area unless they are really pushed. When we are hunting them in Arizona and have put a lot of pressure on a herd we will vacate the area for a couple of days and let things settle down a little before going back into the area. That way the herd can get back together and are not as spooky.
I have another month before I head to Arizona and can't wait to get out of the cold and warm up a little. Good luck on your hunt.
Good luck! I'm planning to hunt stink pig with a handgun this year. I have the tag on the fridge and will have two days only to get it done. Still haven't decided which handgun I'll use but I'm thinking my EDC off duty gun would be fun. If not that one I'll use a single action .44 Magnum.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
