Episode 51 – Choosing Where to Hunt


This week, Tommy and I discuss what goes through out head when we are choosing a stand to hunt. Before we get into that, we discuss our rut hunting updates.



Episode 49 – My Phases of the Rut

What up folks? Today’s episode is all about our theories on the rut phases. Although we have a bit of fun with the names and such, the info itself is my feelings on the topic and timings (as of today that is…).


My list of the phases are:

  • Phase 1 – What are you doing here?
  • Phase 2 – Looks different around here.
  • Phase 3 – Where da women at?
  • Phase 4 – The “Rut-cation”.
  • Phase 5 – Last call.
  • Phase 6 – Late Season.
  • Phase 7 – Damn it!

Have fun with this one!

Episode 31 – The RUT!!!

Well, it is that time of year. The leaves are falling from the trees, the daylight is getting shorter and the cold weather is moving in. You know what that means? The WHITETAIL RUT! This is the time of year every hunter looks forward to. In this episode we discuss what is the Rut? What are the different phases of the rut? What are some rut triggers and supressors? Last we round it out with some tactics on how to bag that buck of a lifetime.

Before we get to the rut I took some time to give my hunting season update. IT has been slow but I had a pleasant surprise. I discuss the BigDeerHunters.com Big Daddy Buck Stick. Last, we finish it off with some feedback and questions.
