In recent years, I have chosen to focus on taking an early season doe. It’s always nice to get the first one out of the way. This year was no different. On opening day, I was out looking to do just that. That early season doe takes a little pressure off from months worth of waiting anxiously for the season to open back up. It also helps that I have a great funnel to hunt that is less than 10 minutes from my house. That being said, it’s really only a doe spot in terms of regular daylight activity. In fact, I’ve only seen 1 buck on that land over the last two seasons. On a day similar to October 8th this year. That story can be found here. I was also able to harvest a doe on that day. It’s amazing how well it works to hunt cold fronts.
Deerhuntertips.com In Season Updates
This year, I’m going to be updating you with as up to date information as I can about my 2016/17 whitetail season. I plan on spending a lot of time in the woods helping to balance the herds in which I get to hunt. Part of what that means is taking many does. Especially since Illinois only allows for 2 bucks. If I’m able to, I will hopefully be able to provide many enjoyable hunts for you to watch as well as fill my freezer as well as the freezers of people in my community. Today’s video concludes with yesterday mornings’ hunt. For more videos by me, check out my Youtube Page or the Matt’s Adventures section of www.deerhuntertips.com
Hope you enjoy!
