Late Season Doe Management
On this episode of Trophy Pursuit, the team reaps the benefits of their hard work during the spring planting food plots. The rewards come in the form of a very attractive late season food source to hunt over. On this episode, the main focus is late season doe management.
When hunting over late season food sources such as standing beans, standing corn, brassicas, or winter wheat/rye you begin to see more and more of the deer herd out in the fields/plots. This onset of deer activity jumpstarts our inner property manager into deciding on taking does. Late season doe management seems to be a fitting time to do so.
After the November rut, and the firearms season hits you more than likely have tagged a buck. If not late season hunting can still pan out and holding off on does in the food sources is a good strategy. However, if you have filled your tag on a buck then the late season makes for a great time to harvest your set number of does on the property.
As the weeks continue, and the cold weather settles in, make it a point to look at your doe numbers and adjust your setups for late season hunting.
