Daytime movement: Movement during daylight is good in rut states, particularly when bucks are chasing does. They may also be seen checking scrapes. Brandon Arrant hunts in Union County, Arkansas, and shot the heavy, mature six-pointer shown at top last weekend, Nov. 9. "I shot the buck Sunday morning at 6:20 a.m. I saw him at 6:15, when he came out on the edge of big timber beside a cutover, working scrapes. I guess the bright moon that was still out that morning as the sun was coming up had him late getting to bed while he was freshening his scrapes up. He was a 5 ½-year-old deer and weighed 225 pounds," said Arrant.
