last week of MG in Zone 12.... I likely won't get to hunt until Saturday morning and may only get in one hunt this weekend.
Any late season tactics that have worked for ya'll in the past that you care to share?
right now my plan is to feed like crazy and hunt it. but that hasn't worked well this year for whatever reason.

Get yourself the brightest light you can find and just strole down them Ole backroads, something is liable to pop up!

Seriously though, I think we are going to do a drive on my farm this weekend if we can cross the river. Good luck!

The deer are hammering corn right now in my area of zone 12. This time of year I like to get in the thick stuff. Somewere they will feel safe, but still move a little. Ive had luck getting in big pine thickets, were you can only see 50 yards or so, and pouring out corn, and hunting them from the ground. I killed a nice 8 pt about three years ago, doing this very thing.

Thick stuff and food. Even better is food along the edge of thick stuff. Good late season food sources are green briar, honeysuckle, and American Beauty berry, A.K.A. French Mulberry. I know a couple of nightmare thickets where the timber was logged and never replanted. The entire patch of ground is a jungle of blackberry, gum bushes, green briar and honeysuckle. There are always deer along the edge in the late season.

Whatever you have been doing, do the opposite.

well the camera run from yesterday was disappointing.... lots of deer hitting feed but no shooter bucks. Either they are dead or in hiding. may just have to drop another doe and make sure I've got enough meat in the freezer.
