hunting after the rut in SW ohio

HI
I would start by switching my tatics, for instance, instead of hunting by major rut areas Shame on You! , hunt by food sources. in the post rut as the does start to come out of heat the deer go back into survival mode. also hunt by heavyly scraped areas b/c the bucks will start to go back to were they are most comfertable and check the scrapes that thay made before ruting. there is also something i heard about a second rut, it isn't much of a rut but more of when the young does go into heat b/c they are now mature enough to at this time cause maybe they wernt during the rut, regardless the deer still rut from mid december to early januay. and if you dont get a deer soon don't stop hunting b/c most of the mature bucks don't start to rute until its realy on unlike imature bucks that start in the pre rut, and continue till december. but your best shot would be hunting food, Big smile
