I had 13 deer in front of me yesterday, one was a large shed and the other young spike the rest does, they were moving pretty good except that it was later afternoon 3:30 - 5:00PM

All the deer are moving either with the underfoot or late just before dark.changeup tactics I haven't been going in deep into the woods I've been hunting close to dirt roads in the pines and it's working I'm just keeping the twitchy finger tucked in waiting for something decient

If I had access I would be hunting within the safe distance off the highways my friend all that salt from the plow trucks along the grass is a deer magnet .I don't venture deep into woods anymore you spook more and leave scent everywhere let them come to you they will move sooner or later.i know in the pines they don't have to see you or smell you if they cross paths were you set foot they will bust

Put out the right feed and they will stay around, I think they like sugar beets and sweet potatoes better then salt flavor gravel, I shouldn't make jokes though I have been sick as a dog for the past few days and haven't been able to bait. So my deer may very well be on the side of the road licking gravel LOL hopefully they didn't kill my feed block yet
