When you already have problems trying to somewhat "patternize" these bucks you guys aren't helping by telling me that my quarry is not "patternable"...LOL. They're attracted to food; they aren't. They're attracted to does; they aren't. They're attracted to a particular area during winter; they aren't.

It doesn't sound like there are many guarantees. When hunting "X" parcel of land I guess I'll stick to the cover edges with available food and does and hope for the best.

I hate to say it Mike, but from my data, I strongly believe mature bucks do not follow patterns. And there could be a couple of reasons for that.

I don't have any data but I'm beginning to think the samething. It seems mature bucks will show habits much more than patterns and from those habits they will tend to show what looks like a pattern but they really are quite random. I know of some deer that I know I can harvest b/c of their personalities or habits and then others where I'm just gonna have to get extremely lucky.

Just my observations from 30 something years of chasing mature bucks but they seem to set more of a pattern and have a smaller range in the vast remote wilderness/national forest areas than they do in farming regions. Though the farm bucks with high protein food resources get much bigger.
