Sneaking through an unpicked cornfield, peering down one row and then the next, is fun and productive in September. Corn holds maximum levels of nutrients, carbohydrates, and moisture then, and the stalks make perfect, well, stalking cover. But once corn is cut, often around the first frosts, in many areas only does and young bucks will venture into open stubble fields to scavenge leftovers. These spots will be hot again later as winter looms and bucks become more desperate. But you may want to avoid them if you’re after a mature animal now, because some older bucks are reluctant to show themselves here.
