I must have hunted my food plot a half dozen times over the course of this season and only saw one doe, until this morning.
Shot a nice, 14-point, Houston County buck around 7:45 when he came walking just a short distance behind a barely legal four-point. With the season drawing to a close, I decided to sweeten the pot and started hand corning the opposite end of the plot from my ground blind. It's the point at which deer have always preferred to enter the plot.
IMO, a noticeable reduction in hunting pressure on surrounding properties, combined with food sources becoming more scarce, encouraged deer to begin feeding again in daylight.
Photo posted shortly.
