Publisher: GLOBE PEQUOT ( THE LYONS PRESS, FALCON), Sep 2003
Total guide to understanding deer in heat. Here, from some of the most respected & entertaining writers in the business, is an anthology of hunting the rut. Catch the early rut, hitting the rut right, slow stalking the rut, & more. B&W photos & illus.; 6x9 inches, 288 pgs.
Whitetail rut behavior and the hunting strategies that take it into account have come a long way in the last thirty years. We now know?almost to the date?when whitetails breed in a particular geographic location. We can translate and decipher deer vocalizations and language; we have better knowledge of the size of a buck?s home range; we know why bucks make rubs, and where; we know much about deer scent glands, and how and why they are used; and much more.
Despite this, one thing remains the same: The rut is a time for hope and big dreams?that the biggest buck in the woods will be so preoccupied with breeding that he?ll finally make the mistake that brings him within range.
Here, from some of the most respected and entertaining writers in the business, is an anthology of hunting the rut. Chapters include:
