I have not seen any does being pushed/chased on our club in Angelina. Nor have any of the dead bucks had any real dark or smelly tarsal glands. I killed an 8pt and an 11pt last week. Neither had a swollen neck or appeared to be close to rut ready.

I am in Liberty County and they are in the peak of the rut right now on our place, if not the down side, which doesn’t always bode well, as they can get locked down a lot of times.

It was really active the past three weeks with a lot of bucks cruising, now, not so much.

Same for me in Trinity county. Cams show lots of chasing last week, swollen necks, dark tarsals. This week, bucks were back on feed. At least the one i killed this morning was. He actually pushed three deer off the feeder before getting shot.

I did see one of our other hitlisters cruising looking for action. He was on a steady fast walk with his nose to the ground and turned away from me at 65 yds. He popped back out with a spike when i was dragging my deer and talking on the phone.

Rifle opener should be pretty good with the second stretch of later does coming into estrous.

Getting these pics as we speak. Funky bucks tarsals are hardly stained. They aught to be fighting, not having a dinner date.

Default SETx rut report

We had a youngish buck hit outside the neighborhood yesterday evening.
We rarely see deer along this stretch so I'm pretty sure he was chasing a smell on the other side of the road.
Harris County - Crosby.

Awesome! Glad you are tagged out, that was my plans also, but didn't work that way. Today was dead, no movement what so ever. Cams showing most movement at night.

Yep, that is probably about right, our cameras were on fire in the October 10th time frame, which would put this at 28 days later

Bucks were moving in the daylight yesterday Liberty county Rye area. I didn't see any but several members did. My daughter was setting up a shot on an 8-point, the feeder went off and it scared him.

I saw 2bucks yesterday. An 8pt and a big 10pt. I almost got an arrow in the 10, he was a very nice buck. Long tines and beams, a P&Y buck for sure. 10pt was following the 8, not sure if a doe was involved. Just to see them on their feet was a plus.

Thanx for posting on my thread.

The rut occurs at the same time every year.

The weather/conditions just may dictate what you see in person while hunting

They have been locked down since Tuesday here in Trinity County. Had two shooters patterned for my brother and nephew for their return Wednesday and everything vanished Tuesday. Nothing on cams or seen in person. Managed to spot a jumbo bobcat yesterday afternoon though. Not even does on cams. Almost as if they completely vanished from the county...

Iím not 100% sure its lockdown or just post rut activity and pics start back up in a few days. We shall see.

Well, bucks are chasing on our lease. Had a young buck follow me to my stand(Evercalm on my boots). A doe came in after him and I got on the board with her.
