Around October 20, old gnarly whitetail bucks are hit with a big jolt of testosterone. They morph from lazy pigs, interested only in eating and lying around, to rubbing, scraping fiends. It's time to home in on their sign, but don't go overboard. The peak of the rut is still a good two or three weeks away in most places. While the big boys are getting feistier, they continue to follow the bed-to-feed patterns the does are on. We worked it all--rubs, scrapes, trails, feed and bedding cover--into these six super pre-rut setups. Tweak them to match your land for a crack at a giant.
