great...miss the best week of the rut again- way to go PGC
You "are" kidding right?
The rut begins long before the first week of November.
In "best" you may be referring to the "chase" phase when it's easy to see bucks running crazy from so much estrus in the air.
I've arrowed more, and bigger, bucks in October and the first week of November when bucks are scouting for estrus does than I have after November 10th.
In the early rut stages they are hanging with does along normal doe-travel routes and much easier to pattern.
Bear in mind, the PGC has already extended bow season into mid November.....................not that it would hurt to make it longer.
I'm all for more opportunity when it makes sense, but I have no complaint about "rut hunting" either.
