After an off-season full of hard work and a memorable October guiding his father to his first archery kill, it's finally time for Mark Kenyon to hunt the Back 40 himself. November is here and MeatEater contributor Tony Peterson is back in Michigan to join Mark for what should be an exciting rut hunt. So far the off-season improvements seem to be making a positive difference, but seven days during the rut will be the true test.
Will the property still be holding increased numbers of deer? Will all those big bucks that were hanging around in October be rutting on the Back 40 in November? Will the prescribed burns, food plots, planted trees, and spritzed trailcams do the trick for Kenyon?
