As you’re hunting the rut, these five tips should help you.
Tip one is to hunt as much as you can. If you can sit all day in a stand, I strongly encourage it. The action can heat up at any time of the day, not just early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
My second tip is to selectively call. What I mean by this is to not just call nonstop, but don’t be afraid to rattle, grunt and use doe bleats.
My third tip is to hunt where does are. Even if you don’t have a lot of bucks on your property, where the does are, the bucks will be.
Tip four is to use terrain features to your advantage. Whether it’s a funnel or pinch point, anytime you can use the terrain to your advantage, I highly recommend it.
My last tip is to ALWAYS be ready. If you’re in a tree in November, have your head on a swivel and be ready. Even if you go a couple days without seeing a deer, at any moment a buck could chase a hot doe by and if you’re not ready, you won’t make it happen.
