It's the rut. Get out and get after those whitetails. I am. You already know about calls, decoys and scents, but here's a hunting location you might overlook. Hunt near water.
During the rut bucks are star athletes and while celebrity athletes guzzle Gatorade, wilderness athletes need water to keep going and going.
If I'm in a water deprived environment I always set my treestand near a seep, spring, reservoir or creek. Bucks will seek these areas out and fill up whenever nearby.
Don't put aside your whitetail hunt any longer. It's time to be in the woods!
Hey, you look thirsty. Free ice water here, just like Wall Drug!
