It was in the 90s this last weekend and I went Sunday morning and that was a mistake. Sometimes it is just best to stay home rather than lay down unnecessary scent when the deer aren't likely to move during unseasonably warm weather. I don't think the old adage "you can't kill one on the couch!" applies in the blistering heat.

First day it was 90*and humid . I was soaked by the time i got in the stand. seen 13 deer and killed a doe. So it was not hot enough to keep me from having some luck. Hope it cools down soon. 90 is my limit, till it gets hotter.

Near a water source by chance? I am asking because the struggle so far this season it being so warm.
Currently none of my stands are near a water source but more near a food season.
Thanks Troy

The single biggest factor preventing me from hunting in the heat is meat spoilage. If I hit one and have to leave it overnight, I want to know that the meat is going to be good when I find it the next morning. I need night time lows in the 40s ideally.
