X-Factor: With archery seasons set to open soon in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan, hunters need to keep track of ever-changing food sources. Soybean fields are starting to yellow, making them less attractive to bucks; focus on still-green patches in the beans, typically found in low-lying or shaded areas. And, of course, scout and monitor oak stands. The annual acorn drop can dictate feeding (and breeding) behavior for the rest of the season. Find a good oak stand, it could be a go-to spot for many weeks.
