I'll be off Dec. 8 - Jan 4th what's the best week in that period? I've seen chasing mid dec some years and late dec after Christmas other years. Wasn't able to take off the last two years for the rut, got lucky this year.
Anyone hunt in the 3 rivers area? I see the peak breeding dates on TPW site is Dec. 16th. Sounds early to me, my experience is the chase is around that time and breeding dates would be maybe a week later.
