Daytime movement: Bucks are cruising in search of the few young does that have not yet been bred. Clete Frazell reported decent action at week's end in southeast Kansas, where he had a nice 10-pointer bedded with a hot doe just 10 yards from his stand Friday and saw three other bucks cruising by during the morning hours. "It appears we are in the cruising tail end of the rut phase here in southeast Kansas," Frazell says, "with a few young does left to be bred." Wenzel notes that the transition from breeding to survival mode has already begun in some areas. "Hunters who think they need to be in a tree stand looking for bucks chasing does are going to be less satisfied than those who focus on food sources and shelter," Wenzel says. Derrick Law of Smoky Valley Shooting Sports in Lindsborg, Kansas echoes that notion. "Hunters are reporting that they are starting to get trail cam pictures of bucks coming into feeders again," Law says, "after they had stopped showing up during the rut."
