I learned something I did not know from Field & Stream editor in chief Colin Kearns about whitetail hunting. WELCOME TO THE WHITETAIL JUNGLE. When most of us think about the Rut, we think about those glorious few fall months. But in Florida, those rut-hunts start in July and run through February; and while a longer season might sound great, South Florida's summer season is often overshadowed by the challenging elements. "We were living out a story that we all knew we'd laugh about later: the best, most miserable deer hunt ever," contributor Michael Shea says. Hear why amid washouts, stifling temperatures, brutal swarms of bugs, and more, a summer hunt in the whitetail jungle is totally worth it.
