Fall is a great time for deer, pheasant and fish

By Bill Bartusek

The above-normal temperatures greeted deer hunters for the second week of deer season. Hunters didn't have to bundle up as they headed into the woods Saturday! For the deer, warm weather is OK. Normally, they prefer much cooler weather. Warmer temps may have caused deer to move after dark a bit more. Warm weather also slows the rut, mellowing things out. Rut activity doesn't get as busy as it would during colder weather.

My hunt starts this weekend in Rushford. The crops are out, and deer are in the wooded and grassy coves.
