Default Llano County rut?

Headed up to the lease in Llano tomorrow and staying through Wednesday. Has anyone seen any rut activity going on? I havenít been to the lease since before all the floods. Looking forward to getting out there with this colder weather.

Iím in Mason County, bucks are looking for does, but I donít think they are quite ready yet. Bucks are coming in to rattling, so make sure you have your horns with you.

Talked to our land owner today. Bucks are interested but does not there. I’m going up Friday through Tuesday. Hope I time it right. I’m near Cherokee.

Forecast calls for 30 mph winds Monday and Tuesday.

Good luck.

We are seen lots of deer coming in but few smell like they are really rutting yet. Won’t be long though.

Killed my big nine one year ago today. He was rutting hard! On a doe and I watched him broadside another buck to the ground. The inside of his back legs were black top to bottom! Shouldn’t be long at all. Hills Of Texas did that one for me and did a fantastic job!

Saw a big 11pt chasing a doe hard this evening. I waited too long to decide and missed my opportunity. I think these next few days should be good. I did Kill a hog tonight so all in all it was a fantastic hunt.

I'm in my blind this morning south of Llano. I didn't see any chasing on the drive up yesterday but I'm hopeful. I plan to move around and rattle today unless the wind is too strong. The rancher has seen a big boar near where I'm hunting so I'm on the lookout. Also need a few smaller gigs for eating. Supplies are low!

Iím in Mason too, and I agree with you. I saw a few cruising this weekend, but no hard chasing. I think itís going to break loose within the next week or so.

I'm in Llano county and I would say its not officially on just yet but close. Had a few encounters with bucks responding to grunt calls. Does are still avoiding bucks though.

Small bucks coming to horns. Some pushing around, but does aren't ready yet. Thanksgiving will be another week I think, but I'm not a deer, or a doe at that.

I haven't seen any rutting activity at our place. Does are coming to feeders and not being bothered by bucks.
I think bucks are cruising looking for does but have not seen any chasing or fighting going on.

Got home today. Saw a few bucks chasing but still hasn’t fired up in Llano yet. I did Kill 4 hogs and saw hogs on every sit. Good luck to everyone hunting in this cooler weather.

We are headed back to Llano County Sunday afternoon to hunt a few days before Thanksgiving. Everyone will be gone and it should be nice and quiet!
