1st. scrapes of the year laid down in last 3 days. I am curious as to how this rut plays out according to D and D hunting predictions for late nov. rut this year. I am running 4 cameras trying to figure moon phase movement with actual weather conditions. Damn cameras are almost addicting. We have a 3 1/2 year old minimum in the club this year so I will be hunting most of the open season. I have always seen a rut burst between oct 6th and 10th. I will post results as I obtain them.
Man, I just dont know what to do this year...
I mean I'm like most people in that I can't step out my back door and be in the woods. I live in TN but for the past 2 years I make the trip to PA in November to hunt for a week in efforts to catch the rut in SouthWest PA. And, then of course, I come back for the opening day of rifle season and hunt a few days there. Like most people, I have a limited amount of time available to take off from work and I'm just trying to pin point when in November would be the best week to catch the rut or at the very least optimize my time in the woods. I'm almost wondering if instead of coming the 1st week of November if I should be concentrating on later November like 3rd or 4th week. I just dont know what to expect in PA based on last years spotty rut. I have locals telling me the 1st week of Nov is generally good and then I see a lot of posts pointing me in the direction that maybe the latter part of November would be better this year.
Help a brother out...what are your thoughts?
Thanks for the info RoughRider.
Unfortunately, my job isn't that flexible so I'm going to have to make a decision on what week I can spend in PA real soon. I just dont know what to do. I guess if it is just going to trickle through it may not matter, but I dont know. Anybody else want to weigh in? Anybody hunting SouthWest PA?
