Here in Idaho we’re pretty fortunate to have a healthy whitetail deer population. Typically the rut begins the first week of November and can last all the way to the first week of December. Our rifle season for whitetail takes in the entire month of November which is one of the most liberal hunting seasons in the west.
The most effective way to hunt these rut crazed bucks is from a ground blind, incorporating a stalk if necessary. Shots can range anywhere from 100 yards to 300 yards so a nice flat shooting rifle will help your chances of success.
Typical temperatures in November can range from 55 degrees all the way down to 15 so a warmer weather suite and colder weather suite are good to bring on a hunt.
