Back in the early 80's (as best as I can recall, it may have been earlier), Oklahoma started an experiment with some of their WMA's that had a lot of bottom land. They would take a certain area of green timber and build dikes around it then flood it in the fall. The water depth would normally be around 18 inches to 2 feet, some areas a little more, some areas had less. This was in an effort to attract migrating ducks to the flooded timber in an effort to provide them with a resting area where they could feed and a place hunters could hunt ducks until 1 p.m.
The Mule deer you hunt in November is not the same Mulie you're trying to sneak up on in August or September. It's important you know the differences if you hope to get within bow or muzzle-loader range of a good Mule Deer buck.
I know and you know, sometimes we just have lousy seasons. There may be things that happen that are out of our control that cause us to miss an opportunity to bring a deer, or deer, home.
If you've done any deer hunting at all, you know the Moon phase plays a part in the behavior of deer. Not only Whitetail Deer, but Mule Deer and other game animals. I know people who will not go deer hunting when the Moon is full. You don't have to miss out on some of of the hottest hunting of the deer season just because the Moon is full. Here are a few tips to help you take advantage of any Moon phase during the deer hunting season.
Now this is a new way to get your Deer. I just wonder if you have to fight the bird for the deer after he catches it? LOL
I'm not sure how successful the bird would be on a 250 lb Maine buck though!
