Rut has begun in northern woods

"The rut is definitely on," reports fellow hunter Glen Shepherd. He's been checking for sign in several places around Roscommon and noticed a change this past week.
Until then there had been little or no sign that whitetail activity or their presence even existed. With the exception of an old hoof print here and there, or trails that had sunk into the leaves, there was hardly any expectation of a hunt.
Add to that no sighting of deer in areas where they normally are located, it was beginning to feel like we needed our plan "B" spot around Gladwin.
But with the recent sightings of rubs, scrapes and runs, we'll stay put. The hard part about hunting away from home is knowing what the deer are doing.
Having someone practically on the scene helps.
