Cloudy, humid weather with rain greeted deer hunters as they started the bow hunting season. Deer seemed to be moving so hunters should have had some success. That's usually the case. With lots of ground cover (since we haven't had a killer frost), crops are also a source of food and should pattern fairly well. After that, when harvest begins, deer will be in transition and hunters will have to make adjustments. Some bow hunters don't actually start to hunt until the crops start to come out.
