They are cruising heavy right now. We are seeing lots of bucks, most making scrapes and rubs.
My 10 from this past weekend.

I was out there this past weekend at my in-laws place. There were allot of young bucks chasing and making rubs and scrapes. I think this weekend would be great for full rut action.

On camera looks like most of the movement is in the morning bout an hour past sunrise and later on cooler days and really really late in the evenings guess its due to the hot weather I didn't see not one thing yesterday had a bad wind right at my back and over my set up but I could hear the axis yelling not to far...... Its supposed to be in the mid 80's today .!!!! Going out this weekend hope its gets better.!!!

Yep that's what its looking like , im banking on a locked down buck coming in after a hot doe to my set up this is my only option at this point because I have yet to see the same activity as last year, I had bucks chasing hard by this time last year....... this year still no action to get excited about.! Put some scents around my cam see what shows up.!

It's been in the 30s at dawn I have notice a lot of deer movement on cameras... Granted the cameras are not at the lake where I hunt but it seems to me like some bucks are still rutting and running does... Good luck to all...

My dad has been at our place since 12/13, west of the 277/377 split.

Said young bucks trying to chase does, still. Too young to understand the game they're trying to play.

Then he shot this buck last evening, said he came cruising through in a hurry, didn't care about eating just checking the crowd and moving on.

I"m heading out there tomorrow morning, grunt and bleat calls packed.

Thanks, David. He was pretty pumped!



Speaking of being pumped, my mom took these pics over thanksgiving at her stand close to camp. Had him right outside the window of her ground blind. He sat on that bluff, and watched the feeders for a while. All she had was a .38 and snake loads (she doesn't hunt, just likes to watch). Big cats are out there!
