Many seasons hunting the rut, I find bucks tend to show themselves maybe twice in a weeks hunt almost like they take a predetermined rut route that takes them on a couple of days journey. I then tend to see them back hitting a scrape or mock scrape in a couple of days later in my core hunting area. Anyone else see this pattern of buck sightings in the rut? I don't tend to read too much but if you have any information regarding extended buck route activity please pass it along. Maybe this is nothing and all I'm seeing is a random rut activity but maybe something to discuss?
