On this episode of the East Meets West Hunt podcast, I'm joined by Clint Casper to talk all about the whitetail rut! Although we dive into some of the typical discussions around hunting the rut, this one is different. We talk about breaking down the phases of the rut, travel routes, a rut hunting mindset, tips for sitting all day and much more!
