24. DAY FOUR, BEST DAY: NOVEMBER 10
We’re teetering close to peak breeding across much of the nation, and buck activity will be stellar today. Sure, some giants will be tending does, but firearms season has opened in many states, and that surge of hunting pressure will put locked-down deer on their feet, and maybe right in front of your stand. Expect some of the year’s hottest pre-rut action in the West, across much of the South, and in several areas of Texas. If you can manage a dawnto-dusk sit, today is the day.
