Hunters who post over large fields, food plots, or agricultural areas stand a better-than-average chance at seeing some rut action. The more real estate you can cover, the better. Travel corridors, creek bottoms, and ridges can also be good stand sites during rut time. Robert Deaton, who hunts a large field by a railroad track in Morgan County, Georgia, found this out last year when he bagged a 140-class buck last year by diligently watching this open area. Last week he scored again on a buck that was cruising the field's edge. "The buck was checking scrapes and peeing on everything," says Deaton.
