Elsewhere, the bowhunting opener in at least three states--Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin--occurred last weekend, and already I'm getting reports of some dandy bucks being tagged. I'll chase down these stories and see if I can post pictures soon. Warm weather was widespread throughout the region over the past weekend, but reports indicate it didn't affect deer movement significantly. By Monday a sharp cold front hit the Great Lakes states, dropping temperatures by 20 or 30 degrees overnight. The cooler temps should result in greater deer movement, and feeding activity. Lots of fresh rubs are appearing near active food sources, and though the acorn crop is spotty, deer are feeding heavily on this hard mast whenever they can find it.
