The September Ky velvet deer hunt is an archers dream hunt. Bachelor groups are well established and usually contain 4 - 12 bucks per group. The groups feed, lounge, and bed in the exact same location for weeks and months at a time.
At Snipe Creek you will archery hunt known and documented locations of bachelor groups of bucks which are known to contain Pope and Young class bucks. It is very common for Snipe Creek velvet archery hunters to see 5 to 15 different bucks in one day, with 2-4 being Pope and Young shooters.
The Kentucky velvet archery deer hunt offers you an archery opportunity at a Pope and Young trophy that can not be duplicated in any state. Snipe creates and manipulates the velvet bucks to 20-25 yards of every stand site that you will archery hunt. Example:
Estrous Corn ... Crucial to maximizing the deer sightings and drawing mature west Kentucky bucks to within 20 yard bow range with predictable consistency is a velvet hunt plan that uses grain.
Deer and bucks have a ferocious appetite for grain during June, July, August, and September.
A MATURE BUCKS SECOND WEAKNESS TO AN ESTROUS DOE IS YELLOW CORN DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.
Snipe Creek with decades of Kentucky deer hunting experience understands how to use the "yellow acorns" to the hunters advantage and the matures bucks disadvantage.
The formula for using grain with maximum success for big deer is much more detailed then going out and dumping a bag or 2 of corn out a week before the velvet opener.
A crucial key factor in the process of "corning for big bucks" is to establish corn piles at least 6 weeks before the velvet opener. Most of Snipes velvet sets will have had the 'YELLOW ACORNS" out on each velvet set 2 - 3 months before the season arrives.
What happens is the deer that find the corn will free range to other food sources and will have the smell of corn on their hooves and mouth. Other deer will follow the "corn scent" back to the corn piles and velvet deer stand.--->>>ESTROUS CORN!!
