Bowhunting Rutting Bucks
A good book will help you stay on stand for a few more hours during the rut.

The last week of October and the first week of November. These are the two weeks white-tailed deer bowhunters live for. The rut will be kicking in, and deer will be on their feed during daylight hours. It's a peaceful time to hunt before rifles begin to crack and a magical time of year to be in the woods, but wrapping your tag on a buck is far from a sure bet. 
Around mid-October, whitetail bucks begin gearing up for the rut. During this time, bucks will work on establishing their hierarchy and territory. They'll mark their range by rubbing their antlers on trees, scraping away the bark and depositing scent from glands on their head. These "rubs" are signs announcing a buck's presence. Finding rubs lets you know a buck is in the area and clues you in to his home range.
