SCENT CONTROL is imperative during the early season, when the weather is hot. Wearing special scent-control clothing and using masking scents is a good idea.

mail — for one antlerless deer license anywhere in the state. But beginning with the second round, you can apply — again, by mail — for as many tags as you want in WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D, in addition to applying for an “unsold” tag in any other unit in the state. Also, you can buy tags for those three units over the counter at any treasurer’s office in the state beginning the fourth Monday in August. To secure licenses in time for the early-archery opener, hunters should apply for tags in the second round, during the mail-in process, or buy them over the counter — again, from any county treasurer. Keep in mind, beginning with the 2010 early archery season, baiting is no longer permitted in the Special Regulations Areas of WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D. The past few years, baiting deer was allowed in these areas, but the Board of Game Commissioners decided to end that practice, beginning with the 201011 license year. So how do you score on an antlerless deer this time of year? Well, for one thing, plan on hunting only in the morning and evening. September is not a time to sit all day on stand. It’s just not worth it. Deer move early in the morning as they return from feeding areas to their daytime bedding areas, and vice versa in the evening. Your job is to find these areas and the trails deer use to get from one to the

other. Set up over a travel corridor or near a feeding or bedding area and you’re in the game. As stated, deer are very predictable during this early season. They are rooted in their latesummer patterns, which means all they’re really concerned about is food and water. The rut is several weeks away and has no influence on the deer. Also, the deer have not seen any hunting pressure since the previous winter, so they’re likely to be as relaxed as a whitetail can be and committed to their daily schedule and travel patterns. A unique condition you’ll find in the woods this time of year is thick, green foliage. Trails that offer you perfect shooting from your treestand by mid-October might be totally obscured by vegetation in midSeptember. So be sure to check your stand sites before the season to see if you need to trim some shooting lanes — when allowed by a landowner — or if you need to shift to a different location.
