How to Hunt Deer: Temporary Edge Strategy
Hunters know how to hunt along these permanent features and this is a When you look in detail at any property you use for deer hunting, there are permanent topographic, biological or man-made features which can make deer travel more predictable.
Hunters know how to hunt along these permanent features and this is a common. These funnel, bottleneck and edge areas are permanent and popular hunting locations. There is a temporary edge created by standing corn that is often overlooked when going out to hunt deer.
Look for any standing cornfield edge connecting two bodies of cover, one body of cover to a hayfield or seasonal food source on the other side, or one body of cover to a water source.
Corn funnels are often available only on an annual basis and crop rotation keeps the funnels moving so you need to spend time each year scoping out new edges each year.
How do I map the temporary edge when deciding how to hunt deer using this strategy?
Take a blank sheet of paper and draw a square. Imagine the entire area around that square is woods. Now, draw a line halfway across the square connecting the edges. One side of that line is corn the other is say, soybeans. This corn-edge line creates a temporary funnel between the two bodies cover. Deer travel this edge, as the cover of the corn is only a step away.
One of the best places to set up a deer stand is in those staging areas just inside the timber where the edge of the field joins perpendicular with the woods. This location creates that "inside corner" deer feel most comfortable using. If you are lucky enough to identify such a travel route, hanging stands on both sides of the field should accommodate not over-hunting one stand location and may accommodate varying wind directions.
These edge areas are typically best suited for evening hunts. Getting to your stand unnoticed may represent a challenge when using the temporary edge of corn. If you opt to stay in your deer stand until the latest legal light, you may spook deer in the field. Hunting in the morning represents its own challenge as deer feed and bed in the open fields all night and any attempt at crossing the open fields will spook them. You may be able to approach undetected if you can access the stand through the woods or sneaking four or five rows in the corn.
Predicting travel routes is the basis of deer stand placement. Rather than hunting that same stand location year after year, try hunting the temporary edges a standing cornfield creates.
