2020 crossbow dates and rut "primetime"

Recommended Posts

Rainy day skull session... Last Season crossbow started Nov 1st as regular (3rd Saturday in Nov)  started Nov17th. This year the opener for crossbow is Nov7. First scrapes I've seen this year are in the same 2-3 day period as last couple so I expect rest of rut to follow same general course. I think of bucks on their feet during daylight as the seeking/chasing phase and use Halloween to mid November as rough dates. Last year I had lone bucks walk by my ground blind on Oct 30, Nov 3 and two on Nov 10 (2md filled my tag). So this amateur moneyball tells me we will have a week less of prime walking buck rut time during crossbow season this year before lockdown starts in mid November. So keep practicing with your bow as Mr Big may come a callin!
