If they do what type of luggage would they use???

Well todays morning and evening hunt was uneventful. Nothing, no deer at all did not see any. It is certainly unseasonably hot..very hot here in NC and there has been a full moon and not a cloud in the sky. I know I haven't killed them all so what gives. It has to be the heat right??:crybaby:

Same here. Not the first deer all morning. Full moon and warm weather has them holdng pretty tight. I didn't get to hunt the evening but I think I will tomorrow.

They have to move sometime.

Naw I dont think they take vacations but they are awful picky when it comes to walking by my treestand. Hot weather is tough hunting in my book. Evening movement always seems better this time of year.

Vacations? no,,, but I do have a thought that always runs through my mind after an uneventful hunt... I always say to myself, they must be having a deer meeting somewhere!
Odds are on a clear day and warm weather, the deer aren't going to move. Watch the weather real close for a front coming in where the temp will drop 10+ degrees. Or hunt RIGHT before a rain storm or RIGHT after a rain storm. I've seen deer come out after a rain storm like little kids.
ALSO- I started doing something last year that I think has helped me tremendously with my hunts. Even on days that I don't "get" anything, and maybe I see deer, but they are too young, or wrong sex, or too far away, I go home and write that down. I've made a rough drawing of the property I hunt and I pattern these movements by the deer. I watch where they are going during my hunt. B/c if one deer is using a trail, there's going to be more using that same trail. This helps find where their bedding areas are, and where their daytime areas are.

If it is pretty warm out their movement may be hindered till dark and cooler temps. Or there is a decent food source in or near their bedding areas. Here the White Oaks are so many that the deer maybe rummaging around the nearest Oaks and that will also throw their travel plans off.
