It was cloudy, windy, and cool mid 30. Rabbits did not want to play. Without the sun to bask in it seemed they had gone into their holes to stay for the morning. But other wildlife was out and about and I got to do a bunch of roving. Shot horse apples to shrubs. Some of the pictures are grainy tried to zoom in. A herd of younger does let me get to 30 yards, of course in September they would spook at 100. But I won't have it any other way. Turkeys are tough to see black at the edge of the buck brush. Two herds of 12+ Mulley does, antelope, and a whitetail doe I missed a picture of. Grand morning in all

It is a challenge for me to hunt in open country with the wind, sun, and terrain being factors. Would you us build natural blinds, spot & stalk, or wait for deer, antelope or turkey to move up to their natural bedding areas?

Hud I have used both. I find spot and stalk to be best. On travel routes in this country the deer may stay around a day or three. But then they rotate to another location. If you don't hit it right it could be days or weeks before they use an area again.

I use a still hunt/ spot method. I get to the top of ridge or mountain. Then I work the edge looking over for deer that usually feed up hill in morning. I try to figure where they will creast and get there first. If they bed before the top I try a stalk. In afternoon I hunt slow hoping to see bedded deer first or as they get up to feed, and try stalk.

Good information, I wasn't aware they'll move to another area. I remember you said when hunting, animals moved onto private property when pressured. Hunting in semi-open and heavily wood area, the distance from bedding to feeding areas varies, but probably much less than in open country. I use binoculars frequently to spot and stalk, and imagine you would use them a lot. My favorite for close viewing are 8 x 42 Nikon, but probably would use 10 x 50, or 10 x 42 in open country. Good pictures, lots of country to move around and hunt.

Water soarse in the country I hunt can help. The creek by my friends place, the deer come off the mountains to water but even then they will change routes to the water. Most bucks water at night. I will get well above a seep early knowing the bucks will be working there way back up high after watering at night.
With mulley does I have seen a three to four day rotation in them being in a area. Bucks can hang several days in a location unless pushed, then you may not see them again that season.
Areas with ag fields you can better pattern muldeer much like white tails
