Evening all, First generation hunter here who sees more tail running away from him than a fat kid in high school...Primary rut was a BUST. Been hunting Jordan Lake. Doing all the theoreticals correctly, save for maybe taking a spot despite less desirable wind patterns here and there--but I balance that against the mine field of crunchy leaves at some other spots I found with potential. Hoping to have move luck during secondary rut, or even some good public land tips for the area during the between rut period. I spent the first 3 weeks so far off the beaten path, yet I seen multiple people killing deer in the same SPOT 100 ft off a parking lot for the entirety of that period. I keep telling myself, those deer will get pushed this way...day after day. nada. are the deer here suicidal? Saw no more than 1 buck and maybe 4 does the entire time. the does running away from me while heading to 'less accessible places' and the buck never stopped for me to get a shot. errrr.
