So, after practically tripping over roe during the rut they are , as wadas sagely predicted, 'laying up now they've had their fun'.
I'm still seeing plenty of signs, but no deer.
How long will this period last?
What do you think I should adopt now as a strategy? Should I bide my time until they get their breath back, or start creeping through the trees rather than waiting in ambush at the places I know they frequent?
The freezer is almost empty, it's reaching crisis situation!
Even resorted to going after woodies with the 12 bore today. I only saw 2. Didn't even get a shot off.
