Top hunting outfitters in Texas with hunting tips? In terms of temperature, dawn and dusk are the best times of day, of course. But because bucks often head back to bed before dawn this time of year, evening hunts are generally more productive and less risky. If temps are consistently hot, there’s a good chance deer won’t show until the last hour or even half-hour of shooting light. But remember, that may be all you need to put your tag on a monster. Most important, pay close attention to subtle changes in the weather. A breezy day, a slight drop in temperature, or an overcast sky can make a big difference. And if the forecast calls for a light rain or drizzle, grab your rain gear and hit the woods. Nothing gets sluggish bucks moving like light precipitation that breaks up a dry spell-even if the mercury remains high.
Hotspots: When winter gets serious, snow depths are lower and ambient temperatures higher on south-facing slopes, making them preferred bedding areas. Look for low-growing browse nearby. Likewise, low swamps and marshes provide relief from frigid winds. Also focus on young clear-cuts and grainfields because winter deer will build their existence around these food sources. The closer the grub is to bedding cover, the better. Hunt Plan: Watch the Weather Channel on a daily basis, and be sure to get into the woods ahead of any approaching storms or fronts. Set up on the hottest winter food sources, especially near good bedding and security cover, and hunt in the afternoon, as your chances of beating a buck back to his bed at this time of year are slim.
This was an amazing adventure for our family of six. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Cabins with private bathrooms are very clean. Food is DELICIOUS. Most of all they are #1 in hospitality. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home and like we were part of their family. Thank you so much for a fabulous adventure.

Tyler Porter, Ken-Tenn Hunting Outfitters: In Kentucky, scouting in August means a lot of glassing and watching fields. It’s key to know where deer are entering fields and what types of deer—bucks or does—are using that field. I also look at the bean plants themselves. Often, in parts of the field, the beans have been eaten down to nothing. That tells me deer are using that area most. It might be a good spot to hang a stand or an area to observe further at a respectable distance. Kentucky’s season starts the first Saturday in September, so our pre-season scouting is critical to our September velvet hunts. In the two or three weeks leading up to the opener, we back off the farms as much as possible and put little to no pressure on deer, except to fill up feeders.
