Whitetail Question
« on: August 04, 2017, 06:47:35 PM »
Pulled a late quality whitetail tag in NE Wa that has oct 21 thru nov 22 hunt dates.  Looking for a heavy mature buck.  What is the best days  to hunt them in the rut.  I have heard the nov 19 is post rut by some. 
I have 5 full days to hunt. 

Thanks.
Bryan

 The last 5 days. No way is it post-rut by the 19th.

Early Thanksgiving week is a great time for heavy whitetail action. I make a point of being out there Sun-Mon-Tues of that week. Do you have antlers and a grunt call?

I have both.  Never used either.  I wish I had them last year.  We had a pair of bucks clashing horns 200 yards downhill from us..  Could never get close.
