The passing of a friend and the impending sale of the property she was generous enough to let me hunt on these last five years has me scouting for new spots. In an effort to find some big deer and get as far away as possible from other hunters I'm venturing into the swamps. I'll be hunting on the ground with crossbow/rifle and a ghost blind for maximum portability. I've located some well used trails where deer are moving from the swamp out into farm fields; another promising spot involves paddling up a creek in my kayak (lots of sign near the edge of the water). Does anybody have any good general wisdom for when deer typically move into and out of cattail cover or transition areas between swamp and field? Any particulars kinds of features to focus on/ set up near? Any and all advice welcome.
