Default and then the rut is over.

So what do you change to after the rut? Do you keep hunting the same way?

There is 1 week in-between shotgun and muzzel loader, so I'm thinking they should be calming down and getting back to there normal patters. Right/wrong?

Once the rut is over the bucks are going to be eating as much as possible, concentrate on food sources, if the deer get a lot of pressure you will need to get near their bedding areas and catch them coming to and from their food.

After the rut and gun season, concentrate on food and cover. The bucks might move a bit later but they have to build up the fat they lost chasing the ladies. I like swamps that border corn/soybean fields. Once the guns start, I hunt close to cover mainly.
