RE: Pa's Late Archery Season
i have always seen deer and got shots during the second archery season.......the deer will be looking for food so any standing corn or late cut corn is def an area to consider.......i hunt mostly properties that have had limited pressure all season so the deer aren't as jumpy as others that are hunted hard..........i love it when there is fresh snow in the woods also so its easier to track and the deer stick out like a sore thumb...........i will be hunting in chester county on one of 3 places that i have not hunted all year (due to the fact that I moved to VA)..........i have had some success by rattling lightly in the second season as well and have seen bucks still rubbing trees. From my experience, surviving bucks will group up with one another. last year i saw three small bucks together, a 3,4 and 6. i think the 4 and 6 made it to the following year cause i saw them in the same are, same antler frames but bigger tines. what part of mont. co are you hunting?
Patience should not be tested, it should be rewarded!
