I feel the same way at times, but come late season when you see those guys bundled up with frozen snot stuck to there face. While we are in a hoodie basking in the sun makes me feel better about our situation down here :lol:


Like today? Half way through "spring" and we are in the midsts of ANOTHER winter storm. Highways are shut down and everything. Bleh. I still love it though.

:lol: True. I have to hand it to those guys who are typically bow hunting in subzero temps.


Subzero is nothing. I can handle adding another layer. I am miserable when it’s 90 with a dew point of 70.

We complain in Wisconsin when it snows in April. Southerners start complaining when you get 50” of rain one day, a hurricane the next, and step on a snake after dodging a gator the following week when it’s 110 and a dew point of 95.

I think we have it pretty nice up here if you ask me. you southern guys have my respect, but then I wonder why you would live down there in the first place :lol:

Will say every place I've ever been to in the world has its own set of challenges. But for bowhunting extreme cold would be my worst nightmare. Due to all the clothes, trying to make a good shot with all the bulk and shiver me tenders! In my area when it's forecasted to drop below 32 schools and business are shut down. A whisper of snow or ice involved gets a visit from the president, evacuation procedures in place and the national guard involved.

The new sitka ascent system made this last year much more enjoyable.

Everybody make sure you’ve got your bread and milk...lol

I should’ve known better when I married a girl from Panama City beach. At least she’s cool with becoming a widow during the hunting season though.

Thank God for the Rut

Usually if your on the right property about Jan. 1st starts the best hunting. I like early September, and rut... But clearly my best hunting for mature animals was January.


Man the more I pay attention the more I believe that. Some serious TITANS hit the ground late season...

What do you think is the biggest factor? Food, cover, pressure?

Cold, food, and cover... When it gets bitter cold they flock to food but need bedding cover. They stay on a pattern better than any other time of the year... Another helping factor is snow.

Do you get more aggressive for the last couple weeks of the season?
If so would that contribute to the spike on your chart?

No. Im always aggressive. Big bucks are simply easier to pattern, see in daylight, and hunt on cold days.

I would be really interested to see the age class data added into the chart. Really hard to pull that data accurately, but would be very interesting to see how many 4yo+ died in early and late compared to rut dates.
