First or Second week of November?

I can take off November 2-3 or any two days the following week to get out and hunt. Which week would you prefer?

Re: First or Second week of November?

It is a crapshoot but I like the first week of November more than the second. Do you have to decide now or can you wait? If you can wait till closer time and see what weather is like. If it is real hot or a washout is called for 1st week then I would go second week.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

From my experience the week for me seeing very active rutting has been the first week of November.

First week for me. I think both the 1st and 2nd are equally good. I will say that if the weather doesn't stay cold or they are calling for torrential rain all week I will switch to the 2nd week.

Re: First or Second week of November?

I like whichever of those weeks is going to be cold and clear. Of course it is kinda hard to predict that ahead of time.

Of the two, I see more buck movement the first week, less buck movement the second week, but bigger bucks moving the second week.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
