With Whitetail season upon us, I knew that Field & Stream had presented an article called "Best days of the rut" that fills you in on everything you need to know. Who better to talk to then editor-in-chief Colin Kearns. Field & Stream's 14th Annual "Best Days of the Rut" is the go-to guide for hunting the whitetail deer breeding season—aka, the rut. Broken down into six phases (pre-rut, seeking, chasing, peak breeding, pickup breeding, and secondary breeding), the special section has vital information on the rut, 50 expert tips, and more. Plus: Our picks for the seven-absolute must-hunt dates of the season.
