The breeding peak has long passed in much of the region, which is a good news/bad news affair. The bad, of course, is that the long-awaited crazy time has slipped away for another year. The good news is actually two-fold: There'll be another (though minor) wave of rut activity in the next week or 10 days, and bucks will find those late-cycling does (and newly cycling fawns) near food sources. If you can find a hot food source now, your chances of getting close to a nice buck will skyrocket. Guess correctly on your stand site--like Logan Marum did on the dandy Wisconsin buck shown above--and you can still tag a monster.
