Whitetail bucks may be less cautious during the rut, but that doesn’t mean hunters can be less careful.

Gear Aid™ and sister brand, Camo Form®, are pleased to announce a new blog post featuring tips and tricks for remaining invisible during the November whitetail rut. Once a year, during the rut, whitetail deer let their well-honed guard down—because the instinct to mate overpowers their usual cautiousness.

"Whitetail bucks may be less cautious during the rut, but that doesn’t mean hunters can be less careful," said brand marketing director Gerald Craft. "You’ll still need to be as quiet, scent-free and invisible as possible. And for experienced hunters, invisibility means wrapping weapons and gear with Camo Form."

Because the deer rut is tied to the number of hours of sunlight in a day, its timing varies according to geographical location. As the days grow shorter, the rut is triggered. This generally occurs in early November. During peak rut, does are in estrus and ready to breed—and bucks have just one thing on their minds. Bucks still have keen eyesight, a sharp sense of smell and acute hearing, however, so hunter's must remain cautious.

"Studies have confirmed that deer see much better in the UV spectrum," said Craft. "This means you must remain invisible by cleaning clothing with a detergent that is free of fragrances and optical brighteners, like ReviveX Synthetic Fabric Cleaner by Gear Aid."
