It's that magic time of year again when the bucks begin to turn up the heat! The pre-rut is always my favorite time of year to hunt whitetails in Ohio. You can become more agressive with your calling and you should be seeing more trophy bucks all day. Our temperatures have finally settled into our normal range with the highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's. It become harder to miss the day on stand with each frosty morning! The scrapes are all open now and active and the mature bucks are beginning to push the younger bucks to the wayside. The Ohio rut is just around the corner!
Our hunters have been having great success with some great looking trophy bucks. Each hunt brings with it a new adventure and boy have the hunts been exciting this year! We have been blessed with a great group of hunters again and it sure does make the time fly. We will be looking at November shortly and it feels like we have just started the season. Bring on the cold weather and rut!
