Gun Season Set Ups
Then on Wednesday-Friday I typically go out to my uncle's farm in Jackson county. He has over 100 acres and most of it is big ag fields with very few trees and a big creek bottom through the middle. The group typically gets a few off this piece every year as well.
I am using a brand new Winchester Model 70 in .270 topped with a Vortex Viper 4-16x44. Really nice gun that I'm looking forward to using.
I always thought the open hardwoods may work the first day before they know what's going on. But even that can vary. Like where I hunt now there are so many more people that I think the deer figure it out on the Friday before. Where I used to hunt the pressure was less and the deer were more apt to be out in the open on the first day.
Thick crap. Couple openings on one side, but I never see deer in them...always in the thick junk.
Gotta be alert, sit all day, and be scent free.
