I’m sitting here this afternoon, doing what I usually do.
Hemming and hawwing over if I should hunt, where I should hunt, what time I should hunt, how I should get to where I’ll hunt, how I should hunt, etc, etc, etc. It’s a serious disease that I’m pretty sure has recently been consuming about 65% of the entire brain processing power I possess. Given the fact that the overall processing power I possess isn’t all that much, losing 65% of it to deer hunting minutiae is a problem! Haha, at least that’s what my wife seems to think.
That said, as usual when I find a resource that helps me with my current struggles, I like to pass it along to you, the Wired To Hunt Nation.
Below you’ll find a short video interview from Mark Drury of Drury Outdoors I came across recently, in which he discusses how he likes to “time weather fronts” and hunt them accordingly. This situation he describes fits perfectly into the circumstances I have coming down the road over the next few days, and his token insights helped clear my thoughts. Here in Michigan we’ve had a string of high 40 degree days, but a weather front is moving through late tomorrow and by Saturday morning temps will be down into the teens. My strategy will be to avoid pressuring my local whitetails until the time is just right. Timing the front will be crucial.
As you’ll see in the clip below, Mark has some interesting thoughts on when the best times to hunt an upcoming front should be, and I hope you find it as helpful as I did!
