Easy . . . Just look at the KISScents Hunting Calendar.  It provides an instant reference to deer hunting's "three seasons" based on the timing of this year's rut.  

Click here and it will bring you to our calendar.  Hold your mouse over a part of a season, and it will tell you  what the deer are up to during each phase . . .

The calendar also tells you which KISScents are most effective during the three seasons, so you can 
"stop rolling the dice" on effective scent usage!

NOTE:  The rut forecast dates are based on photoperiod and moon phase research by the industry's leading whitetail behavior experts and with help from the state DNR whitetail authorities.  

Weather can have an effect on the timing and intensity of the rut.  Cold, cloudy weather can trigger an earlier rut with increased buck activity while warm weather can delay the rut and slow down buck movement.
