Shot my first bow buck from a tree stand at 94 degrees with a good wind.

Can’t kill them from a couch.

Probably hunt the mornings out of my tripod, and bird hunt evenings. But in reality I’ll probably just end up working on something at the camp.

The hotter it is, the stronger the need for deer to come to water. I will hunt an isolated water source close to cover where I have a mineral block and feeder. Your trail cam should tell you when they come to drink-sometimes at midday. I try to get my kill in a cooler asap. Sometimes the processor closes up at 8 pm, so that can be a challenge.

I'll be heading out from the house on Sunday morning to the lease. Will hunt Sunday evening through the Tuesday morning hunt. I probably won't shoot any deer unless something crazy comes out but plan on thinning the pig herd out

I will for sure be sitting in the 58-60 deg mornings..... The 80 degree evening probably as well. It depends on the wind directions.

Are you bow hunting birds? I donít think youíre supposed to shoot a gun during bow season. Some bowhunters donít like hearing gunshots during their season.
