If I lay a couple down with the rifle I might convert back to bow for the remainder of the season.

Anyone got any tips on where to set up for late season deer?

If the deer aren't pressured real hard you can get next to green fields etc.... But public land or other pressured areas you can try hunting edges of bedding areas , travel corridors , and mid day hunting . Sometimes they get accustomed to the pressure and start moving in the middle of the day . Good luck , I'm going out with the bow in the morning .

Only broke out a gun two afternoons in the last five years. Killed both times but it's just not the same as bow hunting.

I like hunting trails and funnels heading to food plots with my bow in the late season. I always try to get 2 or 3 does since the rut is over. It can be tough, no leaves on the trees and they are pressured. It is fun though.

There's some excellent advice here! In my neck of the woods (mid-TN) late season deer hunting is usually pretty dismal! You're lucky to even see a deer! So late season deer hunting when temps are often in the teens and you have to wear what amounts to sleeping bag thickness clothing makes for some challenging bowhunting for sure!

This is when those late season winter food plots can REALLY pay off!

I like to hunt smaller WMA's that tend to be Bow only, so I tend to hunt with the bow all season by default.
