I wish you were right but I have to base it off what I have seen my whole life. The bucks obviously travel up here I have just never seen anything to say the rut is better in the bigwoods vs any area with better deer numbers, the math just doesn't add up. More than likely you hunted an area with more deer in Montana and saw a good rut. We had some great ruts when we had more deer, probably just a simple numbers game.

I didnt say they have a better rut (if I did that's not what I meant), just more buck movement during daylight IME. MT mountain country big woods had OK whitetail populations, more mule deer.
