    when to make a move

    alrighty fellas throw me some in put here, iv been chasing this 6-8 year old bruiser of a whitetail since start of bow here in ok, and only seen him 1 time (oct 1st) until this morning i had him at 50 yrds and some yotes ran him off he didnt know i was there, and our rifle season starts saturday which means alot more pressure in the area , the area i hunt is 320 acres of heaven with moderate pressure on 2 sides, im not sure if i should go back in after him in a day or two or wait till opening morning of rifle n hope a doe hasnt taken him to different pastures since the rut is starting to take off..!!!! Any thoughts??

    Go hunt him when you can. If you didnt spook him you should be fine.

    I would hunt him ever chance you get, use scent cover & keep the wind in your face. If you got a good crossbow or can borrow one I would switch over to it as well. They are deadly out to 60 yards! Put a broadhead through his lungs before saturday! I've been hunting one particular buck, trying to get him as well before rifle opens. I've been taking my crossbow this week as well!Click image for larger version.

    I'd hunt him every chance you get.. No telling when he'll leave your woodlot for the next one over. Bucks can cover a ton of ground this time of year.

    You can't kill him sitting on the couch, get out there. Spend every minute you can. Even if the buck saw or smelled you in that area thats not going to stop him from chasing a hot doe that goes thru the area.

    I would get after him! I have had deer spooked many times from coyotes and they came back out within a couple hours again.

    Eberle- wow! That is quite a deer! When can I come out?! Lol
