PER­SIS­TENCE PAYS

Modern Pioneer - - [whitetail] -

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.
