Deer movement vs. the weather

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I was thinking about going out this afternoon, but it is going to be 35 degrees and 30 mph winds with gusts up to 45 chance of rain/snow mix.

Any thoughts as to deer movement in this type of weather?

Thanks

I see a lot deer moving with a 10-20 mph wind, but I'm not usually out there if its that crappy, if you can get to a stand that is in a valley, or kind of sheltered from the elements, you could see deer move. When its windy, I hunt the bluff valleys, when its calmer, I'll hunt the field edges on top of the bluffs. Sorry, it might not help you much, but the deer should still be moving if you can somehow get out of the wind.

Trigger -- It is a little of of the wind -- it is a river bottom -- so it still could be good. T

Thanks

BTW -- I saw a nice 12 pointer bow hunting but he was 75 yards chasing a doe -- sounds like he is still out there so I am a little excited.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

swirling winds make it tough not to get winded, set up in a good travel cooridor, make a trail of doe pee past your stand/blind. a river bottom should be good, I hunt a creek bottom surrounded by higher elevation crop fields, it can really be blowing on top, but when i get in there little to no wind. It makes it harder as far as hearing goes too. But one thing for sure: you won't get a shot from the couch! I say get out there maybe other hunters will move a few past, and from what i observed in the ground blind yesterday, the fawns have been sent to fend for themselves and some of the does are ready now! bucks are fighting for the hot does, I have been setting up around bedding areas, and seeing many deer moving. take the rattle bag/antlers and a bleat and grunt call. good luck

Yep, I agree with Deano, get out there while its still hot out. The wind is gusty down hear, so at times it will be good. The wind might be tough to beat so be sure you are well sprayed and if possible, shower with scent free soap. Anything will help.

I was out this morning and lasted about an hour. It was just way to windy, thought my tree was going to blow over! Deer movement or not I didn't feel like sitting out there. I love evening hunts much more. Each second that goes by the better it gets.

I love the AM, get out at least an hour before light, it's amazing what you hear, and sometimes see if it is close enough. grin.gif

I agree -- i love morning. I have to get the kids off to school so I have to wait till evenings.

Shoot.

Went out in the terrible wind last night and didn't see anything. I had low expectations, so that is the way it goes.

Conferences tonight -- shoot -- kids take priority, even during hunting season.

The wind died around here about 4:00. I took a couple of deer from the weekend to the locker & saw 9 deer on fields on my way home in probably 12 miles. It was in that last 15-20 minutes of light, but they were moving.

Figures -- In the valley here the wind went UP as it got darker.

Nuts and bolts.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
