X Factor: Thanksgiving weekend was the final weekend of gun season here in Kentucky. Firearms seasons run a little later in the other states (it's up to you to check the regulations for your particular county, of course). Though southern Tennessee hunters still have some good rut hunting ahead, it's time to be thinking about the late season. Cold weather and limited winter food sources can concentrate deer, so be on the lookout for standing corn, beans and winter wheat, especially. Late season deer can be difficult to hunt--but you can expect to see big numbers if you're in the right spot. And, some does will come into estrous in the late season. When they do, you can bet bucks will be chasing them.
