Big Game, Small Game. What’s Your Game?

deer in winterYesterday, my business took me to three beautiful upstate counties, Columbia, Greene and Ulster. While walking several vacant parcels of land, I noticed one thing, there are a buckload of deer roaming the country side. So much so, that we practically ran into each other at every stop that I made. While talking to one of the locals at an area gas station, he reminded me that the recent cool mornings increase deer activity.

Low temperatures spike deer activity. Deer know that when the daily average temperatures start to fall, its time to fatten up for winter. Bucks will forage on acorns, corn, & whatever other high fat food they can find. Their goal is to build up enough stored energy in the form of body fat  to ensure their survival during the physically taxing rut and extreme cold temperatures of winter. Does will also fatten up for survival and to ensure they have enough stored energy to sustain a successful pregnancy.

As many of you already know, Early Bow Hunting starts next week on October 1 in the Southern Tier, along with regular bow hunting in Westchester & Suffolk Counties. Whether you’re a big game hunter or small game hunter, you need to know the rules.
