Deer Forecast: Weekend of Oct. 13
Temperatures in Northeast Pennsylvania were outstanding this week, but we have been stuck in low-pressure conditions all week. In the field, there have been a number of buck to hit the ground and many sightings of buck in daylight hours. I had a sit this week where I saw seven bucks and multiple examples of bucks lightly sparring.
The matches in many cases were not fair as a big 8-point and a better 10-point jostled antlers with scrappy bucks and small 6-pointers. It was almost like watching the shift change at your favorite gentleman’s club when the day shift swapped out for the night shift.
The rut has not kicked off from my reports and there have been a number of sightings of buck checking doe that wanted nothing to do with them.
Once again, we are faced with a wet weekend after a long work week.
The latest forecast has light rain beginning Saturday morning around 6 a.m. and becoming heavier around 11 a.m.; the rain is predicted to last through Sunday at 9 a.m. Winds will be light Saturday morning with a decent barometric pressure.
The best bet for this weekend looks to possibly be Friday night with a 3.2 rating, while Saturday morning comes in with a three rating. This is a great time to dump a slob before the rut sends them into a tailspin. As we all know, the rut is a great time to hunt but it can also be very frustrating and we are only a few weeks away from hunters complaining that the Bucks must be locked down with a hot doe.
A good friend of mine was an avid poker player and he always used the statement: “All I need is a chip and a chair.” Well, all you need is something to sling an arrow and chair so get your butt out there and put the time in.
