I've had a few people ask me recently what days I'd recommend they take off of work in the next month to hunt the rut.

It may seem like a little ways away right now, but summer usually tends to fly by, and all of a sudden it's deer season.

And with that, I hope you enjoy the story of this public land hunt from a few years ago...
