    All the acorns have dropped and the soybeans on my families property are virtually dried out. Bow season starts next Saturday. What is the best plan of action?

    Move around during the first few days and just see what happens...at least that is what I plan on doing once the season starts. I do not remember it ever being this dry.

      If there is a pond or other source of water on the properties, that is where I would hunt.

        Deer will be looking for succulent browse, if there is any, in creek bottoms. Hunt the edges of thick areas.

          Got corn? one place to look.
          Otherwise check the cover adjacent to the soybeans. Also, I have observed deer in the little patches of soybeans that are still a little green.

            If you've had as bad a drought as most of the rest of us, I would go hunt over water, if you have any.

              hunt travel corridors, pinchpoints, saddles, funnels. all the areas deer are most likely to move. and im willing to bet there are still a couple acorns falling. look for where you can see the acorns eatin on the ground and the corrisponding deer trails. if one of those trails heads towards water or bedding and you can get in without being busted or crossing deer trails get on that trail.

                  Blood trailing ended up being a thing this weekend, figured I’d throw one more spin off out for the sake of serious discussion.
