Late Season Bowhunting Basics For Whitetails
Late season whitetail deer hunting can be the toughest hunt of all. Here, noted author and hunter, Paul Atkins shares some of his tips for success.
December is a tricky month for bowhunting whitetails, especially in the dense hardwoods where patterning deer is almost, if not totally, impossible. The rut is pretty much over and in most regions the rifle season was finished weeks ago. Chances are you will not even see a deer except maybe at night, crossing the road in front your truck. On the other hand, you may hear of a deer that has been seen in an area that you have the opportunity to hunt. The deer is in post-rut shape, worrying only about food and cover, but never the less he’s been seen on the move and with a little basic knowledge you might be able to get close. Whichever the case, it can be tough, but as the saying goes “being in the right place at the right time” is everything.

If you’re like me and only get to hunt whitetails occasionally, or when time allows, and the thought of scouting an area, setting a game camera, planting a food plot or even hanging a stand is nothing but a dream, you can still go in “cold” and get the job done, especially if you love to spot and stalk, and like to hunt an area on gut instinct. Some areas allow the use of a feeder to bring deer in, but for me this is not an option.

If you love to bowhunt and spend time in the woods, and the information you have on an area is minimal, then these few simple steps will enhance your chances on connecting with a late season deer.

FIND THEIR BEDS
Deer won’t be to far from where they are comfortable and feel safe. The area I bowhunt in northeast Oklahoma is made up of dense hardwoods with a combination of briars and scrub. With little in terms of crop fields, the deer rely on these areas for two reasons: One to bed, two, to feed on the hard mast that has accumulated on the ground. However, depending on the acorn crop for the year, this can be hit and miss. If most or all have been devoured already, deer will move on to browsing anything that is still green. Honeysuckle, which is intertwined within the briars and scrub around our place are abundant and a favorite for deer come late December.

Whichever the case, these areas are ideal for deer during the late season and they will usually hang out there 24/7. If they do decide to venture to an adjacent pasture or water source it will be late in the evening, usually right at dark. Late season deer will sometimes create somewhat of a travel route to and from these areas, but it’s been my experience when it comes to the hardwoods it’s never the same route. However being in the general area long before the sunsets for either a stalk or just to set-up on the ground or next to a tree or downfall is an ideal situation for an ambush.

DOPE THE WIND
The key to any hunt is playing the wind. With all the new technology in scent proof gear, I still personally believe that having a good sense of wind direction is the key to success on any hunt. No matter what the quarry, being able to get downwind of your shooting lane will improve the chances of getting a shot. In the area I bowhunt, late December usually brings a northerly wind, but that isn’t always the case. Carrying a bottle of wind direction powder and constantly using it will enable you to detect what the wind is doing at all times. Most bowhunts are doomed because the wind either changed or hunters are not paying attention to it. Of all the factors that determine success or failure, being able to accurately judge the wind is key to any bowhunt.

THE GROUND GAME
Spot and stalk is tough, no matter what the species. Personally, I prefer to hunt this way versus any other approach. Maybe it’s the Alaskan coming out in me, where trees are an after thought and success depends on being able to move and be in the right spot at the right time. However, with whitetails it’s different and being on the ground is not near as good as being in a treestand or a ground blind. But when you walk in and hunt a new area with little knowledge, spot and stalk is about the only choice; plus if time is a factor it let’s the bowhunter cover more territory and see what the area has to offer.

If you’re on the ground, start by slowly working your way into the wind with a desired point or area in mind that you want to reach or set-up. In the hardwoods of Oklahoma, every step echoes through the hills. Dry, dead leaves make a lot of noise and the slower you go the less noise you will make; plus it gives the bowhunter a better chance at spotting a deer. Most hunters move too fast while on the ground and want to get from point A to pint B as fast as possible. The key is to start early, giving yourself plenty of time to get to where you want to set up. For every 20 steps, stop, look and listen for 20 minutes. If the area holds deer, your odds of seeing or getting a shot will greatly increase.

CALLS & SCENTS
Late season bucks are wary. They have seen, heard and smelled just about everything that the hunter can throw at them during the fall and unless it’s really interesting, they will probably just ignore you. Calls can be used to get their attention and in some cases stopping them in order for you to make the shot, but if food and sleep are all they’re interested in, then most calls won’t work. On the other hand, scent usage can be considered, especially if its food flavored and practical to the timeframe. Remember, it’s December and you need to consider what a deer might be searching for at the time. Acorn or corn flavored scents might be considered. If at all possible place it upwind of your setup so that will attract a deer to your location and hopefully bring one within bow range.

THE WEATHER
Most articles that are written about late season whitetails deal with cold weather. There’s usually snow on the ground with the only food source being some leftover corn that a farmer left in some adjacent field. Eventhough that sounds like an ideal situation, it isn’t always the case. For many of us who hunt south of the Mason Dixon line, December is still somewhat warm. Food sources are tough to find and being able to track a deer in nothing but leaves is next to impossible. Most days are sunny with wind, but occasionally a storm brews, temperatures drop and clouds roll-in. Deer will react and move a bit earlier than normal. Like most of us who were taught to hunt by our fathers or grandfathers, the fluctuation of the barometer is the key to success. When the barometer starts to drop, the deer will be on the move. If this is the case, make sure you’re in the woods, set-up and ready.

CONCEALMENT
In all hunting, good camouflage is a must, but even more so if you’re on the ground. Being eye to eye with a skittish whitetail instead of standing in a tree or inside a blind is about as tough as it gets–one false move will ruin any chance you have at releasing an arrow. Having good camouflage from head to toe, including gloves and a head net or face paint, are a must. Personally, I like to wear face paint for no other reason than it keeps my peripheral vision clear without the clouded view of something over my face. If you’re hunting in weather that requires an extra layer or two, be sure to check your draw and make sure your string will clear your gear. I once had a great buck within bow range only to have my arrow hit the ground in front of him due to the bulky sleeves of my coat. I never saw that buck again.

MAKE THE SHOT
All hunting situations call for the right equipment. Good, flat shooting, hard hitting bows, such as BowTech’s Insanity or Invasion are excellent choices. Whatever your brand, they not only need to be quiet with a let-off that’s on the high end, but you need to be comfortable shooting it. On the ground you will be either shooting from a kneeling position or while sitting down. Practice is the key and bowhunters should implement this during their practice sessions. Shoot from a variety of positions wearing whatever you plan to hunt in and know your effective range from these positions. Being prepared to make any ethical shot at any given moment is the key to success.

Most late season scenarios go something like this: You spot a deer coming your way through the thick undergrowth, and you quickly find a lane where he should appear. Drawing your bow at the right time, usually long before he arrives is your only choice, you wait. You might have to hold that bow for what seems like forever in order to make the shot, but you do and as soon as he appears in the opening you grunt and he stops. You place your pin and the buck is yours.

It was starting to get cold one December and darkness was setting in. I was thinking about grabbing my gear and heading home, when I noticed movement to my left. Through a small stand of young oaks I caught the flash of a deer and then an antler appeared; just one long tine that rose above the leaves. I instantly froze thinking this has to be my imagination. But the tine I had seen coming through the brush wasn’t my imagination, as it belonged to a very nice whitetail buck. Concealed behind a tree, fully camouflaged, I watched as the deer inched closer. With the light quickly fading, I picked a spot where I thought he would come through, barring no distractions, and drew back my Destroyer. With the wind in my face the buck cleared the last bit of brush and stopped. I hit the release and the Gold Tip Velocity arrow tipped with a Steel Force 100 grain broadhead was on its way. The stillness of the area erupted and the buck crashed to the ground a mere 20 yards away.

Bowhunting late season whitetails in the hardwoods, in my opinion, is about as tough as it gets, especially on the ground. But if you pay attention to these few steps and are lucky enough to connect, it will truly be a trophy of a lifetime.
