Default Anderson County Rut ?

Iím taking off Nov 4-8 to hunt during this week. Rut is typically a week or so. I know guys have been seeing some buck activity. Wondering if they should still be chasing next week or probably going to miss the action?

TTT for the evening crowd. My cousin says he didn’t see much activity today. He’s not the most reliable source though. Anybody else seeing much yet on buck activity?

Young bucks have been chasing and some mature bucks are with single does. It's on and will be 3-4 weeks.

Ruts in full swing in Henderson County. Mature bucks are on doe and not leaving them. Anderson County should be the same. You see a doe be ready for what’s behind her. You picked a great week to take off.

Well let's see. My dad saw somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 does this evening, and only a single 2.5 year old buck showed them any interest. I saw 10 does, and the one buck I did see, also a 2.5 year old, was being chased by one of said does. No scrapes anywhere either, and they're usually being made by mid-October.

I don' t know what's going on but where we are at least it's no started.

I hunted on Friday and both bucks that came through had their nose to the ground. Just no size to them. I start the archery hunt at Gus on Tuesday. I think we are going to hit it about perfect.

Yesterday they were on the doe hard. Saw a total of 2 mature doe, 2 yearling doe, 1 nubbin, 2 yr old 9, 3 yr old 9, 4 yr old 8 and mature never seen before 8pt. All bucks were on the doe all day! We couldn’t t get a shot for my son they were moving so much.

This morning the doe came through and the 3 hr old 9 was 15 minutes behind her. Last night 2-4am they were running hard in the food plot and another new mature buck showed up.

I say try a decoy(s) set up!

I just got back into cell service at the house and seen this post. I've been in mills county. Nothing going on there at all. At my house here in Anderson county they have been since Tuesday. I've got a buck right now with his nose so far up a does butt in the pasture right now. Guess I should have stayed here.

Every buck I have seen the past week have been trailing does. I watched a super nice 10 point chase a doe across Hwy 79 near Tucker store around noon today.

Not much action lately. Weather is not ideal. A little windy at times & very mild. Had some pigs try & come in this morning & had a doe bust me about 7. She blew & busted out of here. Nothing moving since

Last week of October was great. I was seeing deer all over the place every sit. Saw about 5 or 6 different young bucks, but nothing mature. Thought for sure it was about to get crazy only to sit every day this week and I havenít seen a **** thing. All week only seen two does. Iíve even gone stalk hunting a couple times and didnít jump anything at all.

This county just kicks my *** every year.

My cell cams freaked out this morning when a deer walked out in front of them. I thought all my batteries were dead there wasn’t much movement over the last week.

Just had a two year old 8 point come make a scrape about 40 yds from me then walked under me and down the lane. Jumped the fence right into the neighbors front yard.
