    If I had to pick November or December, I would pick December, food being the main ingredient.

    Yearling does get bred in late ML. Look for the young does, won't be long before the bucks are somewhere near by.

    I think the whole deck gets reshuffled during gun season, and then it takes a while for all the deer to re-organize themselves into groups and patterns, but by late ML, things have settled down--plus pressure's a lot less, and usually it's finally actually cold. Makes me nervous, hunting in not-cold.

    Some of my best hunts take place in December. Reasons all ready said. Gun season can be tough as deer fell the pressure in the woods and warm temps can slow movements.

    I only have woods to hunt so luck or not, I’ll hunt mornings. Now, if it’s actually cold, colder than now, and it’s a full moon, we’ll go in around 10-11 and sit the rest of the day.

    Absolutely!! If there are any Turnips around where you hunt they will be on them. Late MZ is all about food...well except a little 2nd rut...but hunt over food, hunt all day if possible and like others have said It can be some of the best hunting all season.
