Archery Pre-Rut

Archery Pre-Rut

The hunt is a 5-day, 6-night all-inclusive hunt including lodging & meals.

The Pre-Rut Hunt is the last few weeks before the primary rut and is one of the best times to tag a trophy. During this time the bucks become much more active within their home ranges; putting down rubs and scrapes and looking for those first early-cycling doe.

90 percent of overall scraping activity happens outside of the shooting hours. But, for five to seven days after the October full moon, daylight scraping activity starts to heats up. At this time about 50 percent of scrape visits occur during the day. The guides at Premier Outfitters will find the hottest sign on our farms and have you perched in a stand ready to intercept one of our mature bucks.

For this hunt, you'll be allowed to harvest a buck of a minimum body weight of 190 lbs and/or bucks will have a minimum 5 inch mass measurement at the H1 measurement, antler base and a doe.
