Daytime movement: Whit Peterman, ranch manager for Falls Creek Ranch near Hico in central Texas, reported that deer activity was good, but few deer were going to fields and corn feeders. His lease hunters reported the same thing. They also reported that with windy conditions, deer activity slowed down. Look for bucks that will soon be entering the post rut-phase in the central and northern half of the state to regain their appetite, and start hitting corn feeders and wheat fields to regain lost calories from the rut. A couple of years ago, on a mid-December post-rut hunt near Abilene in North Texas, numerous bucks were visiting the corn feeders every day--as many as eight at one spot. That was on a ranch where maybe one or two bucks would visit a corn feeder. If you're hunting a post-rut area in December, find a food source and guard it to see a buck.
