We all know the toll the rut can take on a buck. They are going non stop fighting, chasing, breeding. When the rut is over the ones that did make it through the season are worn down and hurtin. What affect does the rut have on you? I know that I've been going non stop, hunting at least 4 days a week. Sometimes staying up for 20 hours in a day, just so you can hunt in the morning. Its alot of work to get a nice buck. And, then there are the highs and lows. The sleepless nights after you cant find your deer and have to leave him over night. 2nd guessing yourself. Its alot of mental work as well. What do you think?
