All across North America a huge cold weather front has moved in over night from the pacific and heading now east. Here in our region the temperature dropped from a balmy 50F (10 C) to 30F (0 C) over night with light snow flurries and up to two inches in elevations above 1,800 ft. (560 m) see level.
What this means is that you should be out hunting this weekend, the rut will kick in hard and deer will move all day long. Don’t forget to take rattling antlers and scent with you. This is a good time to rattle a big buck in or fool him with doe-in-estrus scent.
In a few hours I am heading out with my friends to the hunting camp north of Merritt, BC. We have planed the trip a few weeks ago and now it just got better with the weather change. I will be hunting hard all day long and hope you do the same this weekend. It is not going to get much better than this. If any of you shoot a buck this weekend, send me a report and picture.
Good luck to everybody and be safe.
