With day four upon me, I was seeing plenty of bucks and rutting action. One strategy to find and kill big deer during the rut is to cover as much country (thoroughly) as possible. Unless you’re in a fantastic unit (I’m not,) you’ll have to look over quite a few bucks to find something special. I try and strike a balance between covering ground and hunting each area carefully and correctly. Only then am I comfortable moving on to new deer country.
