Area 6 rut

Hey all of you area six deer hunters have you seen the rut calendar? This year we will miss both of the ruts in our area. We must be mostly meat hunters out there because no one is doing much on the subject of getting to hunt later. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Make some noise if you care at all about maybe getting a shot at a trophy.

Area Six Rut

This issue is very well documented as is the accuracy of the rut calendar. At best for this season we will experience 1/2 of our first rut prior to the gun season closing. In my opinion a good compromise would be to shift the gun season so that it runs through Jan. 31 every year. That would allow for always getting to hunt our first rut and at least the second peak of scraping in most years.

March?

I hunt area 6 and also had the pleasure of having my son drawn for the Lake Ophelia youth hunt last year. One of the refuge managers was guide for the morning. In speaking with him, he told of a story the previous year where they witnessed 3 bucks chasing a doe in an open field (ready for this) - on March 18th. Indicated that two of the bucks may have made book with the other being a 140ish 8 pt. Said it was obvious the doe was in heat.
