Hunting October Lull was eventful, with snow flying here in Southeastern Minnesota and the deer on the move. With some adversity comes direction on how to set up on a potential buck of a lifetime! With high hopes we entered our new farm's back 40, that is surrounded by bluffs, and the belly of a valley that is covered in standing corn. As I attempted to do a hang and hunt, my hunting partner watched a show unfold from +100yds away! Needless to say, I was cut off by bedded deer who spooked as I inched towards my target tree so that the next best thing would be standing two rows deep in the corn. As two hours past two monster doe's fed out of the bedding area into the natural funnel of set aside, I got set up on. The deer walked three yds in front of me, but with the wind in my favor and Predator Fall Grey Camo Pattern on I went undetected by these two!


That evening I decided to do an observation sit between a new food plot of Biologic, soybeans and standing corn that runs along a creek bottom where deer funnel in from 3 different bluffs. With the October Lull and 0 mature deer in the field, we came out only keen on doe groups and their travel patterns. This information will be useful when our standing corn is cut, and the mature bucks in the area have no place to hide! Stay Tuned...
