Angry Did i just blow my season untill rut or should i go back and when?

just got busted my self. had two nice bucks sparring for about an hour just out of range this morning. never could get a shot and couldn’t even decide witch one i wanted to shot if i did. needless to say they went into the thick brush near my spot i waited about an hour without hearing anything and had to go to work so i started down my stand and not knowing they were right there in the same spot i last saw them. first foot i touched on the ground they went off blowing and running as fast as they could out of there. i just want to if and when i should go back and try it again or if i have just ruined my season at this spot.

I'd go back there ASAP at the same time you were last hunting (evening/morning/afternoon)


Just my opinion

I agree with Tator, and because you've got some sparring action going on, "Anytime" in there is a Good time!!!

I agree with the above posts, get back in there maybe a small amount of antler rattling too might bring something in. Not too aggressive yet just light rattling to make a buck investigate what's going on in his area. The bucks left the area not knowing you were there which is the key! Good luck!

i would definitely go back to that spot at the same time! as stated above bucks are territorial to an extent and with a little rattling he will come back to see what is going on.

just from my experiences

small series of just antler tickling at 20 minute intervals. As the rut draws near then more aggressive volume and simulation of two bucks going at it. Sometimes it works other times nothing.It's just one more tool in the bag to try. A nice set of six point antlers work well just cut the tips back some. There are simulating bag antlers that are pretty cheep that do a decent job of imitating the right sound.
