    Understanding how they use ridges to navigate across the landscape is one of the most important lessons an Ontario hunter can learn.

    What can I but enumerate old themes,
    First that sea-rider Oisin led by the nose
    Through three enchanted islands, allegorical dreams,
    Vain gaiety, vain battle, vain repose,
    Themes of the embittered heart, or so it seems.
    -- "The Circus Animalsí Desertion" by William Butler Yeats

    That's a good article. It was drummed into our heads from the time I was a youngster to hunt high ridges on bright sunny days and hunt low on cloudy rainy days.
    When you're dead,you don't know you're dead. The pain is felt by others. It's the same when you're stupid.

    Sound advice, basically playing the thermals.
    A true sportsman counts his achievements in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport. - S. Pope

    I am not a hunter . I read an article about bucks can be found on high ridge on cold sunny days. Well I watched this ridge in Ancaster ON for about 2 winters and - nothing. Then one cold clear day again I drove by that high ridge and looked- and there he was. A huge buck laying in the sun high on the ridge. A great sight.

    favourite deer spot by far was a spot we called the ridge. overlooked a small stream and all overgrown brush with three fields adjacent to it. it was the most peaceful spot. all you had to do was sit behind a small bush and wait by the deer trails.
    sadly, i no longer hunt the ridge since moving. i miss the ridge...
