Who is sitting in observation stands now?

Unread postby jonsimoneau » Sat Aug 27, 2016 6:04 am

I haven't found a buck I want to shoot on my small Illinois private properties. So even though it's late I'm going to start sitting in observation stands on public ground near areas that I have already thoroughly scouted during the winter months. The idea is to hopefully get eyes on a decent buck. Then if I do I already know where he is likely to be bedding because I know where all the beds are I that area. I know lots will change by season opener but I figure it's worth a shot. Sound like a plan?

Sept 23 I plan on it. The opener is the 24. A lot can change from now till then. Small game hunters, people hanging stands and scouting, a shift in food sources from ag crops to acorns and apples.

I'm looking for a certain buck. No luck seeing him yet.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

I've done a couple sits this year, and I've also stayed on the ground for a couple.
