our rut doesn't happen until late jan. or early feb.

the last 2 weeks of hunting season are usually the best.

the more does you shoot now, the better your rut will be.

i killed a 7 point this morning in walnut hill. tarsals were clean and his neck was still skinny. whipper snapper is right. the rut isnt until the last 2 weeks of the season. however, i did a lil walking in Evergreen and found a bunch of big rubs and some scrapes too. but reguardless, the rut is still nearly a month away

Wed. I went to my lease property just north of Laurel Hill and along a woodline there were 2 scrapes...I went back tonight and there were 8-10 fresh scrapes....I tried to work some magic but only saw 2 deer come out at dark and could not put horns on them...When I came out, I shined up the 2 and the 2 turned into 7 w/ 1 looking like a buck...I'll catch him eventually!!!

I dropped a big Nanny last night, and she still had her yearliing with her, and another Doe came out soon after. The rut is still 2 to 3 weeks off here in Baldwin County.

if there is some people that are close to where you are hunting they will certainly help your forcasting. you can't depend on information of someone that hunts even 40-50 miles away. remember, it all depends on when your does get ready. i do believe you should start seeing some pre-rut signs up to a month in advance. i shot a few does this last weak and none of them were near coming in. i am also a long way from you. you should pay attention to what the black water hunters are reporting as well. remember also the true crazy ass rut, only lasts for about 3 days. the rest of the action is pre and post rut.

it wont be far off, IF and I say IF we can get some constant cold weather. Plus on this full moon, I think with the timing of this cold snap, you will probably see a little more pre rut as well. The bucks are rubbing and scraping on our place as well, but don't think they are serious yet. But if you do find a good buck working a scrap line, NOW is the time to start toying with is emotions with some scents. And not doe in heat. Use other dominate buck scents. Then when he gets hot and heavy trying to figure out who is coming into his house and pissing on his carpet, then drop a little standing doe pee and click your bow off safety, cause he is a coming

if im not mistaken(i could be wrong) but isnt it the amount of daylight in the day that determines the rut rather than the temp. i know alot of people that think the cold weather starts the rut but from what i read its the sunlight... just a lil tid bit of info. cold weather just increases daytime deer movement.

I think you are right. It is one big washing machine that all the factors have to be put into place. You do see more activity during colder days due to the deer needing to keep the metabolism high.
