Most of the archery hunters I know hunt throughout the
season but I do know a few that ONLY hunt the rut. They
start around halloween most years. What do you do? I hunt
the full season but admit over the last few years I do like
hunting the last two weeks the most. I have scored on bucks
during the opening week a few times but the last few years
the first week of November has been when I got my deer.
I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

Hunt all season, but admit i burn out the stand too quickly with scent and my traffic, so i tend to switch stands for the rut (see heart attack buck) Dont like to get up early, but favor mornings over evenings anytime because i have all day to track if needed.
