How Much Time?
Posted: Wed Nov 01, 2017 2:29 am
You might have read my previous post about the 9 I killed in a hill country bedding area. Shot him on 10/27/17. Based on how far in I was, I had to clean and quarter him about 70 yards from where my set up is. I'm dying to get back on that spot and go for number 2 this year, but don't know how much time I should give the spot, if any. How long should I wait to hunt it again? Plenty of bears and coyotes in the area so I'm sure the gut pile is long gone. I did try to pick up what was left on the ground and carry it down below the military crest. I figured if predators came thru, a buck would still be comfortable bedding there as long as he could see and smell them from his bedding point. It rained hard for the last 2 days as well. Advice on this? In the future should I not dress and quarter in the area I'm hunting? Thanks!!!
