July Scouting Tip
Deer Hunting Tips: July is a good time to scout for early season deer hunting success. Deer will be on their summer time feeding schedules. They will be feasting on a variety of field crops. Often the deer hunter can take advantage of this time of year to pattern bucks for the September bow season.
Bucks can be seen in bachelor groups during day light hours throughout the summer months. Scouting allows the hunter the opportunity to view the deer from a distance with the use of binoculars. A good hunter will keep visuals on bucks at both early mornings and late afternoons. Viewing from afar allows the hunter to watch deer without being detected.
The hunter can then keep notes as to the locations of where the deer are entering and exciting the fields during feedings. Don’t forget to make note of the times as well. Also pay attention to any watering holes that can be used by deer. They will be frequenting these areas often due to the heat. Such gathered information can provide the hunter with starting points as to where to set up stand locations for opening day of the deer hunting bow season.
Keep these deer hunting tips in mind the next time you are out riding the country side. As always be safe and good luck.
