With the hunting season in full swing and acorns falling, the race is on to pattern a buck and maybe even catch him during an October cold front.
We are still going to use the mock scrape tactic as it will be a great attraction throughout October, but we are changing the location and strategy. Instead of between bedding and beans or Ag fields, or just by good runs, we are moving locations to oak flats.
Minimal Intel is a LOT of Intel, especially as October cold fronts move through the states getting deer on their feet! Just one or two trail camera photos or videos is enough to base a hunt on. October cold fronts are perhaps the number one guaranteed strategy to use right now as it has been proven to work not only on this web show but Hallowed Grounds, Trophy Pursuit, and especially with Whitetail 101 with Bill Winke.
So for this week take a good look at your oaks in the timber, if you have any, and the amount of acorns falling. Scout around to see what the foot traffic and deer sign looks like, and get some trail cameras in the area to locate the bucks as they change food sources. Next week’s topic will build from the tactic this week which again is trail cameras acorns, mock scrapes and cold fronts….which is what you should rely on right before we take a drastic change that’s slowly creeping its way toward us.
