I've had some of the best luck rattling post rut. I'll be trying that some.

Find groups of does. Bucks will be cruising searching for the unbred ones. They will be a while behind them, but they will still be checking.

Just starting to rut where I hunt, but food will be the focus when post-rut time comes.
