The key to ambushing white-tailed bucks skirting the edges of legal shooting hours is catching them early during their evening journeys.
Research shows that hormones from a doe's reproductive tract and associated vaginal secretions during the time of estrus are primary sexual attractants.
Bucks and does of all ages are readily attracted to man-made signposts, but what else can these fake rubs tell hunters about whitetail behavior?
The whitetail breeding period, known as the rut, follows predictable stages of deer behavior. These changes dictate the effectiveness of hunting strategies.
A recent scientific study showed that some white-tailed deer are genetically resistant to chronic wasting disease, which is found in 22 states.
Examining your deer from head to hoof can give you insights on the herd and may help you understand more about them and your management strategy.
