We're in the heart of late-season hunts and I'm in the middle of two hunts. I'm hunting the late-season Nebraska muzzleloader season and then moving to Kansas to wrap up some bowhunting. Here are my plans.
First, I'm hunting food. Tired bucks will be hitting any food plots, agricultural crops and mast crops available. I'll be set up nearby to take advantage of any buck showings.
Second, I'll be hunting early and late. Bucks have been hunted for months now and are paranoid at best. They'll only show early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Be there well before legal light and stay until the last minute. If deer arrive and stay late, sit it out until they leave so you don't spook them from a good spot.
Finally, I'm dressing warm. I'm using my best Under Armour Coldgear along with plenty of handwarmers and my Heater Body Suit . I'm too old to be uncomfortable so even though I may look like the Michelin man, I'm the one who is laughing. It's because I'm warm and comfortable in the harshest of late-season environments.
Good hunting this winter!
Who's laughing now? I'm warmer than a kitten in a wool sock!
