In this video, Jeff talks about strategy for hunting after the rut. This is when most of the rutting activity has come and gone, and bucks are largely worn out — but still may cruise for miles in search of unbred does if there are none available in their area.
He also touches on different methods to use in various weather conditions; in rainy and/or warm weather, get close to buck bedding areas; in colder weather expect deer to move earlier in the day, browsing through the woods.
He also talks about the rut and how deer act at various stages of the rut — and how breeding dates don’t generally align with the best time to hunt.
