Any traditional rut spot will work in general, but more specifically, those funnels near food in evenings and doe bedding areas in mornings. However, if you are trying to shoot slightly older buck, or even more challenging, one particular buck, rut not so cut and dry. You have to on windows. In first place, there just arent that many older bucks out there, and those that are in your area are likely to tie up with you as soon as they come into estrus. More dominant bucks are off market than non-dominant ones. Every time they find estrous doe, they are up for as much as three days before they go looking for another doe. Mature bucks are tough to see even when they are around, but to further complicate things, they do get nearly as wound up during early pre-breeding phase of rut as younger bucks. Mature bucks wait, and sniff air until rut is really underway, and then they seem to show up out of nowhere.
