I hear that there is a lot of snow up in NEO now. I took a preference point for spring bear as My info from over there said the snow would be in too late this spring. I opted for fall season this year.
That is the report that I got as well. I have a few areas that should be good regardless of the snow. I have a friend who is a biologist that lives over there and he has been donig some scouting for me. We shall see.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
