Take A Long-Range Stand
Bob McNally 11.17.16
During the height of the rut, there often is no rhyme or reason as to where and how bucks are traveling during their “chase” mode for does. For this reason a rifleman’s best bet to whack a whopper whitetail is to choose a spot where he has a long field of view.
Remember you’re using a scope-sighted, center-fire rifle fully capable of putting a 165-grain bullet through the boiler room of a buck at 300 yards. Set up to take advantage of that.
During the rut, the more quality deer country you can “cover” with your rifle, the more likely your success.
