Any end of the rut tips?

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd ask if there was anybody out there that has had success with certain tactics on bucks towards the end of the rut. I think that down here it's slowed down dramatically. I don't think the deer will be responding to rattling or buck grunts anymore. Anybody else have any tips?

When the rut is over,I would really pay close attention to the feeding areas as this is what those run down bucks will be looking for.They need to put some fat on for the winter as all they have been doing as of late is running does.

well said Harv... They spend a ton of time sleeping and eating... they did their duty.. they need the energy to get ready for the second rut and the winter.

And remember 28 days from now unbred does will go into estrous again, not as intense as the primary, but another good time to fill a tag....mature bucks will remain nocturnal after the gun season for quite some time, feeding at night and bedding in heavy cover. Once the temperature drops into single digits, the need to feed is greater therefore intercepting a buck is more of a possibility. Snow is your friend, as it will reveal locations and travel routes, do some scouting and it could happen. I still have my buck tag and am hoping to find a nice one yet myself...

Does this mean the rut is pretty much over? I haven't been able to bow hunt once this year because of school, and its killing me. I'm coming back for thanksgiving and for gun hunting in SE MN, just wondering if anyone has still witnessed some sign of the rut still going on or not, Thanks!

I just got back from North Dakota and the rut was going well right now and will last a little longer.There will also be a second rut in a few weeks.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
