Not much to do in the PRE-rut?
The Pre-rut is the BEST time to be out there...bucks respond very well to calls....rattling sequences, grunts/bleats, snort wheezes, etc. They are not yet to the point where they are deaf, dumb, and blinded by the does....
Hunt the wind, call aggressively, avoid any attractant scents, (remain scent free, go 100 percent undetected still)
- put the time in the woods....
