It's November, and you know what that means in the world of whitetail deer hunting. The famed whitetail rut should be in full swing across a large portion of the United States. As deer traverse through their annual breeding season, those of us who love to hunt them follow along with high anticipation. If you're going to get the job done and fill a deer tag, this is undoubtedly one of the best times to do it. We have been hunting hard for several weeks here in the state of Ohi
Those prime November deer hunting dates may have seemingly come and gone, but we are still very much in the 4th quarter of the whitetail rut cycle across a large portion of the country. While a large region of the U.S. sees primary rutting activity between the last few days of October and inside the first two weeks of November, the last two weeks of November can be pure magic.

So much that I am even seeing bucks chasing does through my rather suburban neighborhood during my morning workout. It's on, folks. I won't go ahead and call it the "peak" of the rut just yet, but we're definitely approaching that peak of the bell curve that is the

Drew put down a nice and tall 10-pointer with his Mathews Triax on November 6th. He was also joined in success by our host, Jason Williamson. Jason harvested a dandy of a 10-point with his Mission crossbow! #Drew #Mathews #Missouri #KansasCity #Buck #Deer #DeerHunting #Whitetails #Rut #November #Fall
Sweet November is officially upon us. For bowhunters and even some gun hunters across America, that basically means the Super Bowl of the whitetail deer hunting season. The period of the year that we dream about just about every other month of the year. Nothing says deer hunting like the first two or three weeks of November. Those first few weeks of November signify the rut cycle across large portions of the Midwest and Upper-Midwest. Heck, we are already seeing a ton of rutt
Photo by North American Whitetail Pre-rut behavior is just starting to appear on the whitetail deer hunting landscape. A few hunters have observed some light sparring between bucks, rub lines are being touched up, and scrapes are being made. One of these pre-rut behaviors just happens a lot more often than the others during the month of October. That would be the construction and refreshing of scrapes. Bucks are feverishly making and refreshing scrapes as we speak. As the ear
