Question by ethan. Uploaded on November 20, 2009
After the rut I hunt the relevant food sources. Crop fields that have been picked are usually a wast of time. Set your blind between bedding and things like mast crops.
along a fence crossing between bedding grounds and an alfalfa field
during the rut i would place a blind somewhere on a very small hill to look around you or place it facing where you know deer trails are.
off the beaten path, near some cover away from the hunting pressure.
Some kind of combo between bjohnston and steve182...after the rut, bucks are hungry, so food sources are a good place to find them...but they're still in "hunting mode" so the food sources "off the beaten path" will likely harbor some pretty good bucks. Good luck!
