What do you prefer to hunt most? (September 2004 Poll)
I like chasing the Roosevelts but, it's hard to beat chasing after a blacktail in the coastal forests.
Modern rifle, muzzleloader, archery, shotgun all work equally as well with equal challenge. They taste good too.
For anyone that has never had the opportunity. If it ever arises, don't turn it down. It's well worth it.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
