At the Ranch – Whitetail: Hot Weather Hunting Tips

If you hunt early in the fall or southern states, odds are you’ll have to face hunting in hot weather at some point. How to handle and succeed hunting in hot weather isn’t often discussed and that’s what this video is going to cover. First of all, mosquitoes can easily ruin an early season hot weather hunt. A way to combat mosquitoes is through the use of a thermacell. Having a thermacell can certainly make your hunt more enjoyable. The next thing is to hunt closer to bedding areas. When its warm, deer aren’t moving far from their bed in daylight. Additionally, hunting over water sources can be a killer tactic when it’s warm. A couple other things to think about when hunting hot weather is to avoid hunting mornings because odds are, deer will already be bedded by the time it’s light out and when it comes to evening hunts, I wouldn’t get setup in the stand too early. The longer you’re in the stand when it’s hot, the more you’ll sweat, disperse scent, etc. Wait until just a couple hours before sunset to make the trip out to your stand in most cases.
