The rut is on!

by Randy Allen

My passion is bow hunting!  With the cooler weather, the rut is starting to kick in!  Like most hunters I used to hunt early and late in the day.  However, in recent years, I've discovered that staying in my stand from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM is when many deer are on the move.  And bucks in the middle part of the day are after one thing, and one thing only!  Does!

So for those of us bow hunting at this time of year, take a sandwich along in the woods, and stay in your stand from sun up until sun down and you'll be surprised at how many more deer you'll see. And one of those could be the buck of your dreams!

Be safe!
