    Movement times

    I've been in the turkey swamp wma and can't seem to narrow down when they are moving. I know it's been warm but has anyone seen a pattern to their movement. I have scrapes all around my stand but see nothing.Name:  20171101_085529.jpg

    Well per the moon calendar ( which I don’t hunt by, I hunt when I have time to hunt) the good time to hunt to day was between 7:44 and 8:44 this morning, the best time to hunt today is between 12:48 and 2:48 this afternoon (NOW), so sit tight, this day is rated as the best possible day to hunt this month for what that is worth . I personally never do well with a full moon but I think this warm weather will result in a staggered drip drip rut, just my opinion based on what my eyes have seen over the years , I will be swinging from one of my tree stands starting next Friday for 6 days, good Luck !

    It's been on and off. I saw a huge buck at 4:30 Weds night. They could be cruising at any time. Friday was warm all day. Still 70 degrees at 7 PM. Full moon also. It's a difficult year so far.
    Enjoy life. It has an expiration date.

    Yeah I hunted to moon calendar yesterday and the best time was similar and I had nothing. I'm going to head to my stand around 3 and see if I can't get some late movement. Thanks

    I got off to a pretty good start then things seemed to slow down for me once they cleaned out the acorns. Seem to be picking up again. Saw a spike last Saturday and a four pointer today. So they're getting bigger.

    Jcamp. Turkey swamp can be tough. It gets its fair share of pressure. I used to hunt it. I found late afternoon to be best. I also had a spot I would see deer around 11:00 am a lot. It was an escape trail into a swamp. Figured they deer being bumped by people moving around.

    I'm near the swamp with lots of traffic as you can see from the pics. Just need to narrow down the movement time
