Land where I hunting mainly consists of plain areas. There are sixty acres of hay meadow, sixty acres of pasture (cows) and forty other cultivated land. I also have access to fifty acres of heavily wooded terrain. For some reason, I tend to drive lot more often than non-forested woodlands. Why is that Is it because of the ease of travel to and from Is it because the wood is difficult to Maybe corridors open movement of the earth that offer good tale signs of All fairy deer movement would be true in my case. When I started hunting this vast area devoid of trees, I’m stumped. I still remember the day I hung my stand and I put my blinds. I was wrong! Today, I have a better understanding of the movement of deer on this earth. Each year, deer tend to use the same path of travel, same water and the same crop field to eat in. So why waste my time in the woods, right Woods
hunting has its advantages. I do not see anything better than watching and listening to the woods wake up on a cold morning! Even the squirrels are entertaining. Hunting the woods, however, can be a challenge. Imagine yourself at the entrance of a large field of my S. If there is a path made by him, is it not more likely to use the same path Although deer are the same way there. They use the trails. The problem is to identify the deer trail and where to put in place. The number of trails in the woods can be a bit overwhelming for a hunter. That is why I continue my simple and easy hunting. This is where I used to use back to my territory unoaked hunting. Since my woodland and unwooded touch area, I try to study the wood line and follow the trails I can find until they are out there in the open areas. Deer do not spend all their time in the woods, as many think, but they spend much of their hiding in the bush or thick weather. When I
archery non-forested land, I often set myself up and ready for the first light of morning and the last light of day. During these periods, deer are more than likely going to be on their feet and feeding areas, water or bedding. Bowhunting unwooded areas in the middle of days, if not the rut is a waste of time for me. If I feel the urge to bow hunt during the day, I usually travel in the woods where I will have more chance to see the movement of deer. If you find a track that is heavily used and is not in a wooded area, I highly recommend you set within the range of the bow or gun range at dawn and dusk. During these times, you will see deer in these areas on an occasional basis.
Where should I implement in a non-forested area This is a great question that often leaves a hunter scratching his head. In my case, I look at all areas at low altitude first. Cerf, for any reason, you want to stay low in the country and they concentrate their travel low drawls and even old beds of rivers and depressions. When most of your land is flat, but it is impossible to focus on. Another good area is going to be around a food source. In my case every year, I have my S or planted soybeans. If you have enough land, I highly recommend you do so. Many times you can even rent a portion of your land for crops, as we do, so that all the work is done for you by another farmer. Since our cropland is c fallow land for grazing, we cl Tured. This, in turn, creates a large corridor of travel for deer on the cc aside the culture of the fence. In almost any level of agriculture, if you walk on the edges of the field, you will find deer trails. They tend to Be pa along the edges of fields of beans and my S t rather jump in their midst. Many times, when I walk on the edge of a bean field, you can see the deer ate the beans off the plants eight to ten feet across the field.
If we have a pond or stream on our property deer frequent these water points The simple answer is yes. Deer on my property tend to spend much time in one of our ponds in particular. Our main basin is at a higher altitude so that the deer can see a large part of the property. I many deer congregate around the pond at all hours of the day. They even enjoy the bedding around him. Now the Deer Creek really like. Our current will encircle our entire 50 acres of wooded area. Many times I can hear the deer in the stream flowing around or even splashing in the water. I often have people ask me if the deer in a deep fissure. They will indeed. Our creek is about twenty feet wide and banks are around eight to ten feet high in many places. The only problem is when the flow increases, or full. Deer are smart enough to realize, ‘hey it’s raining and the creek is rising in the woods! I often check along the creek for many reasons. When the deer crossing a stream of this size, they tend to use the main travel path. There are far fewer places they cross crunches several times and you can find pinch points where they like to cross.
When you have non-forested areas on your property, this is not the end of the world. I hear all the time on the way were people do not even have to hunt their land because they do not believe there are deer on it. Deer are about as free as a species we humans! They go where they want, and sometimes they need a break in wooded areas. Keep in mind, it is difficult for us to see deer and other animals in the woods sometimes. Thus, it is also difficult for predators to see deer in the woods all the time. Therefore, they like to go in a hayfield or pasture pasture so they can see their surroundings.
Keep an eye on cl structures, water sources and lines of wood is a key element when hunting deer in non-forested areas. Draw a map of your property and record down where you saw deer in the past. I do every time I see a deer. I record where he was and where he was traveling. Chances are that there are more deer travel corridor exactly the same. Also keep in mind that sometimes deer are in an open space full sprint. Typically, they stop somewhere long enough to get a shot off. The reason they do because something scared the woods and they are getting to a point of view. Think about it, would you rather fight T T Mike Tyson in a cage 8 × 8 or in an open field where you can expect to run for your life
Use your knowledge of the land and its resources and your hunt will be successful. Remember, stay ahead of Virginia usually means that you have a full freezer come winter. Do your research, put in your time and your hunt will not only be successful, it will be fun!
