Now I live in Wisconsin, and I own about 40 acres and over the years it has constantly produced a monster buck with each successive year. I was bowhunting one night when a monster of a buck came out with ghostly white tines, the problem was that it was out of range. I have to agree with you that you need to gain as much information one can get by studying the deer and their movements. I happened to not see that buck again, but just because you don't see him again doesn't mean he left. With age those old bucks get smarter, only until rut they grow denser.
Good Article =)
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
