Great Plains reporter Dave Draper is seeing similar action, with bucks active and searching. And as Dave notes, one of the best ways to exploit this behavior is to call and rattle. I’m continually amazed at the number of whitetail hunters who don’t call to deer. So many deer hunters try to call or rattle to bucks half-heartedly, then quickly give up when nothing responds. Keep at it, be patient, and you’ll find that it works.
