For three years, I have been after this huge buck and he has stayed nocturnal. After this past rifle season ended and Dad stayed in the woods with his muzzle loader, he saw the deer pattern back to their pre-rifle ways. They were back to traveling the paths that we assumed they used and they were coming out earlier and earlier. Dad didn't shoot a deer but he saw the small buck that we had around and a few does.
For the first time, it was blatantly obvious that rifle hunters were moving these deer around. While we had been toying with it, it was clear that we needed to get into archery to try and get the upper hand on those deer.
