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.

      Blue Ribbon in Oakdale. Kathy's Bait off Rice and Maryland. If you go up north and drive through the cities, Vados off Central and highway 10 is the best.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble
