On migration hunts, you have to pay close attention to the conditions- snow depth and temperature (and in some units, the calendar)- on a daily basis. The deer are responding to those conditions and if you don’t, you might end up where there are few deer, even if hundreds were in the area just days ago. That is why migration hunts can be frustrating to the unprepared.
As I’ve written earlier, you have to be ready to cover lots of ground and even move camp in many cases. If you’re unprepared to do this, don’t be surprised if you get skunked, no matter how good the tag might be. In this video, you’ll see that I’m trying to adapt to these changes and plan for whatever I need to do to stay in the deer.
