Default RE: When the deer aren't moving

Typically the opening day I try to sit in my spot as long as my patience, and the weather, allow. Then I move around a bit and sit again till dark. After the first day I do alot of the walk and sit method. The area I hunt, in Somerset County has also been cut in the past three years. It's been an ongoing cutting so the deer are moving back into some of the thick areas with good browsing. I went out yesterday in the high winds and the deer seemed to let you get pretty close before they jumped. A few would jump and stop, one of them is at the butcher right now, and the rest would take off like UPS delivering the Christmas packages.

This Saturday I'll treat the moring like opening day. In our area it seems to draw a bunch of hunters that can only hunt on weekends so it'll get busy again.
