On The Mend....

Starting to feel a bit better after about a week of feeling miserable!

Even gave thought to heading back out into the deer woods maybe as early as Saturday afternoon, if this stinking lingering cough subsides. Most hunter use an instrument called a "cough silencer" or "cough muffler" but I've never had much success with said tools.

On the bow hunting calendar, being the middle to the end of October, we are in the pre-rut. The deer are still in their summer patterns, mainly moving from bedding areas to feeding areas. The best place to be right now would be transition areas and pinch-points. One of the keys is to observe the behavior of the does as they often will give hints of more deer to follow, as well as looking for buck sign such as scrapes and rubs, signs of dominate deer in your area.

"The Rut"
Wow! I'm chomping at the bit to get back out there! Still early, plenty of time before the rut itself kicks in around the first of November. I love hunting the rut - that special time of year when the does are ready for breeding and the bucks just lose their minds!!!
