    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.
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

    Sound advice, basically playing the thermals.

    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...
