Land & Legacy | Rut Hunting Success in Improved Habitat

Episode Summary

On this Land & Legacy habitat podcast, Adam and Matt share two exciting pre-rut hunts that resulted in two punched tags for us in Missouri.

Episode Notes

It truly all came together the first week of November for Land & Legacy. Although we travel assisting clients across the country during a large portion of the year, we make it a priority to get as much work done at the home base as possible. As we have discussed in the last two podcasts, much of the work has revolved around creating bedding areas in strategic places. Now that several bedding areas have been in place, the reaping of what we have sown is coming full circle.

This week, we share two exciting pre-rut hunts that resulted in two punched tags for us in Missouri. It's no surprise that these two bucks were harvested on bottlenecks pursuing bedding areas. We also went back to back mornings filling tags. November 2nd and 3rd were fantastic mornings to be in the woods chasing whitetails.

As you listen to the podcast we hope you will consider using these hunting tactics. Beyond that, we hope it will further encourage you to think about how tightly woven habitat is with whitetail deer movements. Habitat is a strong predictor in the why and how of deer movement, therefore get out and begin creating habitat that will become a predictor of deer movement where you hunt. Don't let the rut become a wild goose chase. Hunt and manage land with a purpose. Enjoy.Learn.Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
