I have found for our area the best time is usually Feb. Try looking in all the usual buck hang outs. Especially bedding areas, and routes to and from. I'm going to try something I saw in I think was Outdoor Life. Set 3 post and make a " V " with a link of something like hog wire, and then put corn at the pt. of the V. Plan is that the buck will come in for a snack and knock his antlers loose. We'll see what happens
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
