With trail camera pictures rolling in, it’s time to decide if that borderline buck is on the hit list or if he gets a free pass this year.
Every year I hear of someone that had an accident involving treestand setup or use. This blog will explain the steps you should take to stay safe while using a treestand.
Now is the time of year when Hemorrhagic Disease (HD) tends to hit deer herds the hardest. There is little doubt that water availability is related to the severity of outbreak. In late summer, rain is less common than in the springtime in most areas and water sources begin to dry up throughout the landscape. The effects are intensified when a drought occurs.
As autumn progresses, photoperiod becomes shorter which triggers a change in circulating hormone levels of both bucks and does. This means that rubs and scrapes will occur more frequently across the landscape. This is a great time of year to switch your trail camera to an active scrape.
