Does anyone know if the mule deer rut has already taken place or is expected to start soon? I am new to this area and typically hunt the January mule deer rut in New Mexico, but wasn't sure how it usually developed south of Dryden.

Thanks

It should be going right now. They usually start around Christmas. We saw several leaving our lease last weekend, but not any big bucks.

Are ya'll MLD?

Yes MLD, Last weekend was my first chance to get down there and not many were paired up, definitely nothing with any age. Hoping to get back next weekend and was just curious if we were early or late on the rut.

Cool beans! I hunted mule deer exclusively north of Van Horn. We only caught them rutting once in the 30 years we were there. Since the season ran for the two weeks after Thanksgiving we rarely saw any rutting activity. The biologist for TPWD lived on the ranch just below us and she said it really doesn't start getting western until around Christmas then all heck could break loose.

About 4 years ago my partner and I were headed out for the last weekend of whitetail season. We turned off of 349 and I saw a really nice one. Probably 24-26" wide, very heavy, and equally as tall. He looked just like one I have on the wall that scores 170. He was with a doe and didnt' give a rat's arse about us. And we were only about 30 yards from him.

I keep seeing mulies closer and closer to our lease. I'm hoping they make it over there pretty soon.

Got one in the cooler, about to call this afternoon quits, wind is howling at close to 30 mph.

The one I killed his morning aged on the teeth at about 7.5, worn down dang near to the gums with most his dentine showing. Wish I could have seen the fight he had to break both main beams.

That's a Barrett Fieldcraft in 6.5 X 55 Swedish Mauser and Swarovski Z3. Shooting 130 gr. Swfit Scirocco handloads.

I was goign to shoot him with my .223 and Hornday 55 gr. HP's, but figured he was Swede worthy!

Nice buck! We went out Thursday-Sunday. Whitetail were a no show. Someone was driving roads at night and spot lighting. Our deer shut down when crap like that occurs. Never heard shots though. Mule deer were everywhere, they do not mind the commotion.
We had fun chasing Dove and Quail. The Dove were weird... they did not want to fly. We walked-through sunny side meadows and almost had to kick them to make them fly. Quail cooperated Though. Good times
