Heading out Hunting this Weekend

© By Othmar Vohringer

In an hour I leave with a relative of my wife and a few friends for our November mule deer rut hunt. We’ll be back on Tuesday evening (November 11). I am very exited about this hunt. Previous scouting trips into the area the past week have revealed a lot of buck activity. New rubs – mule deer bucks don’t make scrapes – have appeared everywhere and old rubs have been freshened up. For good measure I placed several doe-in-estrus scent canisters around the area to hold the bucks and make them revisit the area often.

In addition a cold front has moved in last night from the pacific and heading slowly to the east of the North American continent. This front sure will get the bucks fired up and moving. Read more about it on Whitetail Deer Passion – This is the weekend to be out hunting.

Hope you all have a good hunting weekend and please be safe. See you all back here on Wednesday and hopefully I have a great story with pictures of a big buck to tell about.

Good luck, Othmar! I hope you have a great trip. I recently took my first hunting trip outside of my home state of Georgia, and was fortunate enough to harvest a big Illinois ten pointer.
