Default buck in rut help!!

i was out in my stand yesterday morning on my lease and had a doe run out of the woods next to me with a buck in close pursuit. the doe was doing her best to shake the buck but he just kept following her. they ended up running right under my stand and i tried stopping the buck but to no avail. he was on a whole other planet. theres a couple of other guys on this lease and i dont mean to be greedy but i really want this thing, hes a nice 8 point, maybe even more. what do you guys recommend i do to get this buck back to my stand for a shot with my bow???

Default RE: buck in rut help!!

If he's chasing right now there's not a whole lot you can do. However, the rut for mature bucks is organized chaos, it may appear that he is just running around randomly after any doe, which is true to a certain point. But chances are hes already targeted his does travel routes and should be running those back and forth, semi-consitentley. Like i said its organized chaos for him so try to locate his bedding area; both at night and in middday to see if you cant intercept him there. If no luck there, try some soft contact grunts, a bleat-in-heat call, or some estrous scent to lure him in, cause chances are if he's near by, one of those 3 strategies SHOULD catch his attention enough to raise his curiousity level. Hope all this helps, good luck, and let me know if you get him!
