Whens the best time of the season to hunt for the big buck?

Postby Vadeerhunter » Wed Mar 16, 2011 10:50 pm

Does anyone know when the best time of the season is to hunt for that trophey buck you've always wantedd? I think its durin the rut because bucks lose there sense when their in rut and don't care what they do, they just want to get that doe. Lemme know what y'all think

I would say that the rut is the best time to shoot a big buck. But it all depends on the movements of that buck you are after. Some big bucks that don't have much hunting pressure might not be as nocturnal as those that are heavily pressured. That is the good thing about trail cameras is that you can pattern deer and see where they are at.
Good Hunting,

id also say early bow.... early bird gets the worm kinda thing.... so long as you have the pattern down the deer really have had no pressure. figure out what they are doing and opening week of bow season can be very productive......

Pre-rut or just plain Rut... Scout all summer and get your setup down. Trail cam if possible to track times and dates and eating habits. Keep em' around and grow em' with a constant supply of year long food if you can. Grow the deer, watch the deer, shoot the deer! Bucks tend to lose a bit of all there sense during intense rut... the nose usually stays 100% though... Hearing is way off. Good luck!

depends on where, but generally Late October is my favorite. I also like that time of year to be in the woods.
