If she is properly prepared is this a decent hunt? We are not looking for a big buck just a buck. Will the deer be into feeding patterns and trying to focus on fattening up?
Is there any chance for a reduced cost doe tag? Do youth get a price break? I see the buck tags were like 460 each. I have never hunted spehite tails myself, but would like an opportunity if it arises.
What do you think?
I would suggest you & your daughter hunting out of an enclosed blind for several reasons. Even if you get really cold weather she will be able to stay fairly comfortable & enjoy her hunt more than if she gets cold. Movement can be an issue. Deer here get especially jumpy during late season here & tend to spook very easily. Generally during the late season the evening hunting is usually a lot better than the morning hunts because you are primarily hunting food sources. It's hard to get into food sources in the mornings without spooking everything.
Also, if you are planning your hunt over Christmas break, the shotgun season ends on Dec. 20th in 2015. Not sure how many days you would be planning to hunt, but if you are limited to just a few day, I would suggest hunting later during the break than earlier. The pumpkinhead army chases em around pretty hard & IMO the farther you get away from the end of the shotgun season, the better. They start to settle down & get back into their normal feeding patterns once the stop getting harassed constantly.
Hope that helps you some. Keep us posted on things. Good luck to you & your daughter!...Troy
I was supposed that there were no significant cost savings for youth! Tags here are almost given to kids!
What about doe tags? Are those drawn apt the same time? My buddy probably knows all this but I like to research as well!
