If you find one of these rubs during the late pre-rut, hunt it as soon as possible.
Here are a few reasons to invest in paid distribution.
Most wildlife bilogists and experts at the QDMA would tell you that this is the most accurate method for determining when the rut takes place, and it varies very little from year to year.
The theory is based on the fact that measurments taken of fetal fawns have consistently and accurately shown that breeding occured just around the middle of November.
Rattling works best in areas with higher buck to doe ratios.
In areas with low buck to doe ratios rattling should be used sparingly or not at all because bucks typically don't need to fight to find hot does.
Older does sometimes breed several weeks ahead of other does and bucks may start seeking them out at this time.
