NOW THATS FUNNY!
Those are all little guys.. and no it hasnt started...
It’s based on photoperiod, so no.
After November 15 and the orange army come out most of the rutting activity by me comes to a stop. I know it still occurs but I don't see it. So hunting pressure through out the season can have a affect on someone's interpretation of the peak of the rut. I know I better have a buck killed before opening day of gun after that my chances go south. I think the best days are from November 5 to 14 every year.
I’d say so. Max deer scrapes bucks are hanging around does more. Haven’t seen any hard core chasing yet
That’s funny but true.
This is a heated rut, with careful planning and some luck venison will be served this year.
Thanks for the pics
Not early. Not late. It’s mid-October. What you are observing is normal pre rut activity. It happens every year as soon as bucks shed velvet. This business of early or late rut is a fallacy.
Nov 2nd through 12th will be peak as every year and I am about hunted out since hunting state land in new place every night. Need to take a break do I'm not burned out on seeing squirrels
I think it feels early because there are more bucks on the property than I’ve seen owning the property since 1991.
We had a windstorm that took down hundreds of big red pines a year and a half ago and the resulting understory has provided extra food and cover.
Feels early here too? All there doing is humping!
Settled in this morning in my thicket/bedding area stand with the strong winds today, that is when I can access that spot.2 mature bucks were under the stand before I could get my bow up both grunting as they were walking kind of weird but hey I didn’t mind no shot obviously lol
Halloween it will be in full .... so just wait.
Had a 6pt and 10pt walking around with each other about 70 yards away they kept following each other didnt seem interested in the 3 does.. But also had some fresh rubs and scraps on the property!
Notice, I said boys
