Finally, the number-one piece of advice I can offer regarding late-season whitetail hunting: don’t give up until the season’s last second ticks. Your will to succeed is a key to capitalizing on last-chance whitetails. Understand that a rifle sighted in during warm months may shoot low when temperatures turn especially cold. Powder burns colder and the air is more resistant to passing bullets. This phenomenon becomes most noticeable at ranges beyond 150 yards.
