Anyone else fired up for this weekend? A significant cold front is sweeping across much of the country, barometric pressure is high and rising, and the moon (if you believe in that kind of thing) is positioned well for evening hunts too. All in all, this is great news for those of us chasing mature bucks. That said, if you have these kinds of conditions where you hunt, make sure you’re in a tree!
