This week’s post is written by Donovan, a Brookies and Bass alumni and monthly blog correspondent. Even though he attended our fisheries field schools, Donovan is also an avid archer, and details his adventures this year:
Well, it’s that time of the year again. Leaves are falling, the weather is changing and the bucks are chasing does. It is archery season right now in Pennsylvania and the rut, or mating season for whitetails is starting, which is one of the best times to be in a tree.
Even though this year hasn’t been my most productive archery season, what keeps me coming back to the stand beauty and excitement nature has to offer. Weather it is watching the leaves fall when a strong gust blows through the tree tops or finding a buck’s rub line yards from you stand. Whenever archery season rolls around, I can smell it in the air and it is the best time of the year for me.
If you have the chance to go archery hunting, try it. There is nothing to lose, only to gain.
