When it comes to scouting for the rut, doing it in the spring is hands down the best time of year to do so. The biggest reason is because you can see all of last year’s rut sign great. The woods essentially looks exactly how it will next November. It can be tough to see rut sign from the previous year in the summer and the woods looks nothing like it will come November. If you can, I’d suggest even hanging some rut stands in the spring, cutting lanes and the whole nine yards. At the end of the day, being able to capitalize on the spring looking like November and putting time in scouting will only help you come late October and into November.
