Which side of the plot should I hang a stand?
Filed under: Hunting Tactics
I’m glad you will be hunting soon!
I’d place a stand or blind on the side of the food plot that most favorable for you to approach, hunt, and exit without alerting deer!
When the temperatures are colder than normal deer tend to feed a bit later during the morning giving hunters a chance to sneak into stands close to food sources without alerting deer. I used this strategy a few years ago to tag a buck we called the Trashman. You may watch that hunt at: https://www.growingdeer.tv/#/hunting-big-bucks-taking-out-the-trashman
Deer certainly tend to feed a bit early during the afternoons if the night time temperatures are going to be colder than normal.
Be safe and enjoy creation,
