Deer rut is past history for us rifle nuts....

I am far from an expert in Deer habits, (they all seem smarter than I am). But they do seem to all be done with the rut long before the first full weekend in November when we rifle hunters get to go after them in MN.

Will have to agree with Karl for hunting in Texas, too. :wallbash:

If, in fact, your season coincides with the primary rut you are lucky. I am very happy that both the Ky & Tn seasons (gun) seem to pretty much coincide every year. Best advice is to be in the woods as much as possible. Hunting good buck sign, rubs & scrapes, may or may not work well, depending on if they are chasing (looking) or tending.

I like to find a good general area (good sign, including some buck sign) and then hunt funnels. Funnels will always be good locations to spot deer and when/if bucks are "looking" they will tend to follow areas that continue to hold does & doe movement. If you can stand it, find a good stand location, bring your lunch/snacks and plan on sitting there all day.

I've shot nice bucks at times and on days you'd never suspect they'd be up & moving. But, that's what makes the rut (AND the pre-rut, just before does go into estrus) such a good time to hunt. :yes:

My CAR!
He was hot on the tail of a doe, barely missed her. It cost my company 5k to repair the car, it cost me 10 dollars to buy the deer from the state of NM.
