Later and post rut questions

2 posts in this topic

I hunt in Wisconsin, this year the opener starts Nov 17th. Will the bucks still be in rut at all? If so what would you do to lure them in? Grunt, bleet, rattle, scent? Or just sit there and see what comes along. I hunt in the woods, not over looking any crops or openings.

There are alot of does in the area if that means anything? And if they arent in rut, what would you do to get them to come to you this time of year?

Rattling will sometimes still work during Mn 3B season (which coincides with Sconni opener). I haven't had a lot of success using grunts or bleats but know of two decent bucks brought in last year using a rattle bag. You should catch the tail end of the rut on 17th. Thanksgiving week is very early this year. Everything seems to be moved up a week.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
