I vary it a little.

I still hunt my primary stands in my honey hole however I also add another area that I leave alone until after Halloween. I'll probably hit that "hollow" when GMMAT and Q2INWHITETAILS are both here the weekend prior to Halloween. That's where I saw the 160plus 8 point last year and from what I understand, still alive.

I've got one spot I have been saving for the rut. I hunted it only two times last year....but I saw mor ebucks in those 2 days than I saw all year (different bucks).

It's actually only a short distance from my honey hole....but at the right time of year....I'm hoping they'll be on the does. It's a great travel corridor for does.....and they draw the bucks (or...they did, last year).

I vary my tactics a little. I'll use different stand locations on the same piece of property, depending a lot on the time of the year.

Let me just say this, Matt. I may just stay at the house and do a little scouting.
