Wow! Sweet November! How did the whitetail rut creep up on us so fast? I know I’m not the only one that is beyond ecstatic that the rut is here. Add in a pretty spectacular 10 day forecast and I think the 2017 rut will go down as one of the best we’ve had in the past few years. If you struggled during the early season like myself, remember to just have patience, keep the hope alive, and continue pushing yourself to stay out there. Your entire season can change in a matter of seconds!
As it should be, this weeks round up from around the web has a heavy focus on the rut. Happy November!
