The statewide primitive weapons season will open on Dec. 27 and run through Dec. 30. This late season, black powder and archery hunt is always tough, but this year will be even more challenging than usual. Ohio started this fall with about 700,000 whitetails roaming inside its borders, a goodly number, but archers, young gunners, and regular season gun hunters bagged many thousands this year. Those animals remaining, about 530,000, still add up to a substantial herd, but they've been still hunted, driven and tree stranded until the dumb ones are mostly dead, and the remainder are smart, wary and super cautious. They won't come easy, and any who bag a buck or doe will be either lucky or much wiser than the animals they're hunting. Driving deer will still be the most popular way of taking venison, and all too many blackpowder folk will try the same methods used during gun season, lining up hunters to drive through to standers at the far end. After the first couple of hours of opening morning, this will be a poor tactic. Because deer now KNOW that hunters are waiting, and most will slip out the sides. That's where your standers should be, with just one or two at woods end. They'll circle too, if cover is heavy, and end up behind the drivers, safe for the moment. And drivers should be diligent about checking out every bit of brush along their route, because whitetails now will hold tight as any rabbit in available cover. Several years ago I jumped an eight point from a patch of briers and brush that was scarcely eight feet across. Most drivers wouldn't have taken the trouble, assuming that if they walked close by that cover, any deer would flush. But this one had literally burrowed under a small fallen tree, and had nerves of steel. He didn't come out until I was actually in the thicket. Still, hunters will find good hunting during the muzzleloader season, but only if they pick their spots with care. Keep in mind that once the drives and shooting begin, most deer are going to head for the thickest sanctuary they can find. And it's along pathways leading to such cover that you'll have best luck, whether it be muiltiflora rose, swamps, standing corn, or heavy brush.
