Re: When to go ?
Since the timing of the hunt has been hit on several times, I'll throw my .02 in towards location. If you are hunting public walk-in areas, take your map and use a highlighter and color in all the areas within 1-2 miles of any road that is open to public traffic. Then concentrate your hunting and scouting on the non-highlighted
areas. Where we hunt almost every hunter you see is in the highlighted area, if not sitting in their trucks. If you get away from the roads you will find un-pressured game. It takes more effort but if you are in good company the walks are much more enjoyable.
