Best Post Rut & after gun season stand locations

4 posts in this topic

So the gun season will be wrapping up soon and the rut will slowing down. Any tips as to the best post rut, after gun season stand locations? Or how about early december stand locations?

Just wondering if I should switch it up a little bit....

After the breeding period I would look for any available food source they may frequent. The shorter the travel route for them the better as the bucks will be tired and exhausted from chasing the doe around fvor the last couple weeks. They need to replenish energy from the rut and bulk up for the winter.

Also when colder weather is upon us, I mean real cold like into single digits and lower, deer will need to eat even more, so coming out early is the norm, and often times, late mornings can be better than early as the deer tend to wait until the sun warms up the air a tad before rising form the beds. Also stand locations near heavy bedding cover such as cedar thickets and cattails and between feeding areas can be gold this time of year as well.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
