The food in early oct. in the north is wht oak find a good producer , watch tree rats, look for acorns with binocs , stay down wind when possible, enter quietly, slow, rake trail if poss. be as scent free as poss. stay out of the woods before the start ,a month or so. If you must go in to hunting spot wait for rain , glass the area as to not alarm local deer . The old timers live off on there own usually in a dense area with all they need ...until they need her.
