Ensure the plot is strategically located to attract and hold deer throughout the season. Regularly maintain and monitor the food plots, ensuring optimal growth and attractiveness.

June: Improve Deer Habitat

June is an ideal month to focus on improving the deer habitat. Clear paths and remove any unwanted vegetation that may hinder your hunting opportunities. Plant native shrubs and trees to provide cover and food sources for deer. This habitat enhancement will create a more attractive environment for deer while enhancing your hunting success.

July: Fine-tune Your Archery Skills

This knowledge will help you locate the best hunting spots when the season arrives. Combine scouting with trail camera monitoring for better insights into the behavior of trophy bucks.

Employ patience and persistence, and remember to remain scent-free to increase your chances of success.

November: Experience the Rut

November is the most anticipated month for deer hunters as it brings the peak of the rut. Bucks become more active, searching for receptive does. Focus on hunting near thick cover, as bucks tend to chase does in these areas. Utilize rattling and grunt calls to draw in curious and aggressive bucks.
