E81: Southern Exposure (feat. Will Brantley, Hunting Editor for Outdoor Life and Field and Stream on The Rut in The South, Whitetail Deer Misconceptions, and Culture Shifts)

August 23, 2018

The rut in the south can be somewhat of an anomaly. Depending on your location, you may see bucks chasing in the heat of July or there could be hot action in late February. We try to make sense of all that by chatting with Will Brantley of Field and Stream And Outdoor Life. Will is a true southerner at heart residing in the great state of Kentuky. He has hunted all over below the Mason-Dixon and has many great observances from his time spent in the southern whitetail woods.
