All this talk about hot weather hurting the hunting. But a lot of big deer are being killed.

We need to understand, we are in the South and these deer don't have the heavy coats of the ones farther north. Yes, heat will slow the chasing down during daytime but it doesn't just stop all movement. Deer still forage and change locations.

I pay far more attention to the comings and goings of fronts than I do the daytime temperature. A low of 48 at night and a high of 68 during the day doesn't bother me a bit. This is especially true when it is overcast and drizzling or when a cold front or storms are forecast.

I've noticed the same thing. I would have loved to hunt this past Tuesday, and next Monday afternoon and all ay Tuesday look exceptional based on the weather swings. May be a bit windy sometimes, but this doesn't seem to effect them much

I just hunt whenever I can. The only reason I even check the temps is to know how warm to dress.

Yep saw a young buck this morning, buddy shot a buck and now has a much bigger one nearby, I haven't seen any more yet but it's about that time. Deer ain't moving a ton but they are moving and I ain't freezing my tail off.

Try clicking like a frog or chirping like a cricket. One works for all deer, the other only on Jimminies.
