I'm interested in knowing
what exactly makes that a spot you only sit at that time?
and, what is enough sign to keep you there?
It is just like walking into a spot that is hot. If it is not hot or ready to hunt yet. You hunt it you stand a good chance of burning a chance at what might be happening in next week or so. So stay out until time is right.
When you walk in there on this particular spot which is a ridge that runs a good distance. Covered in oaks an is secluded because of a couple creek crossings. If trails have fresh tracks in them an a rub here and there. It is time to try it. I keep track of time year this area gets hot. That is when I move in. Hunting season after season year after year. You learn what works and what to expect in an area. Some places take several season to figure out. Then, sometimes you can walk into a spot and it is hot and you learn a lot.
