BoneCollector has 0 points in September and arrowdlipper only has 5 points, so neither one has been on here very much. I wouldn't be too concerned, just get out there and get after the big boy's. They will probably look in from time to time during the season and hopefully post a picture of a big boy they get.
Either way I still plan on winning this contest, season starts tomorow and I can't wait to be in the tree. Food plot is lush and full, bow is tuned and shooting straight. Only thing i need is that big boy to step out. Won't be able to sleep a wink tonight.
Sorry to report that nothing good on my first morning, although It was a very short hunt as I had to leave early to get to work. I am pretty excited about this friday though, we have a cold front moving in that will drop temps to the upper 60's and bring some rain. Best part is I have Thursday-Sunday off of work so I will be putting in some good tree time towards the end of the week. If I don't put my buck down Im sure I will get a crack at a doe to at least put some meat in the fridge.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. 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...
