I have been meaning to do this for a while but keep forgetting about it. I was just wondering how many VA hunters we have in here. I live in Harrisonburg which sits in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley.
Yeah, I have had a good year but not here locally. I got a doe with the bow, a 6point with a muzzeloader and a doe with the rifle but they were all in eastern VA. I did alot of hunting near Broadway this year, back in behind Neff Lumber Mill. How did you do this year?
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...
