As the season progresses into the second and third weeks adult bucks will become more active and begin to make-up a larger percentage of the harvest. In my own hunting endeavors, at the tale end of this first week, I started noticing signs of the upcoming rut. A few small scrapes located at traditional locations signifies to me that the rut is just around the corner.
Have an enjoyable and productive hunting season and remember that the big boy IS out there!
