I hunted Leipers Fork this afternoon and did not see any chasing, did see a doe with two younger deer. Hunted Clarksville last weekend and saw young bucks chasing all weekend.

I hunt about two to three miles east of Bellwood (above poster) and have not seen any activity this week. I consider this particular area "east grassland" near Old Hillsboro/HWY 96 intersection.

We hunted Williamson County this past weekend and saw over ten different bucks out checking field edges. I shot a 9 pt Sunday morning that was cruising fields. My partner watched two 6 points go at it for 5 minutes. Other than the 9 pt they were all young bucks...nothing big yet. This weekend should be HOT.

We were hunting just off of Wilson Pike.

I had a huge buck run in front of my atv 2 weeks ago while i was scouting for the juvenile hunt. He was chasing a mature doe all across the field I was in. I have never seen bucks chase that early. I have witnessed bucks chasing doe's in February a few times though.

I completely agree. For whatever reason, breeding traditionally peaks a week or so earlier on my place than it does on my cousins' property just 6 or 7 air miles away. The rut even seems to peak earlier on my place than it does on Cathole Club which is virtually my next-door neighbor.

Also remember than even in an area with a tightly timed rut, breeding takes 5-6 weeks to complete. The "peak of breeding" is just the 10-day to two week period when more than 50% of does will be bred, and it is normally at the front end of the entire breeding process. In essence, breeding peaks very quickly, and then tails off over the following weeks.

Below is a graph of conception dates for a property with a mid-November peak of breeding. The entire breeding process took 6 weeks. However, the peak of breeding was the two weeks from November 15 to 28, when 65% of does were bred. However, a little breeding took place the week prior to the 2-week peak (Nov. 8-14) nd then breeding tailed off during the three weeks following the 2-week peak (Nov. 29-Dec. 19). This data shows how estrus chasing can be seen any time over a 6 week period, although breeding is maximized during a two week period termed the "peak of breeding."

BSK,
Many hunters have always talked about a secondary rut occurring approximately 28 days after the first peak rut. Does this mean that there is not a secondary peak, and that it just gradually declines over the period shown in your graph?
