I would like to know what everyone is seeing because what Im hearing and what Im seeing is two different stories. Anyone seeing any chasing? Having any luck with grunts or rattlin? I have not seen any chasing but I havent seen that many deer either. Im hunting public land by the way.

I haven't seen much activity on public land, but I saw a buck with a doe off of Murfreesboro Road, she was standing with him so not quite sure what was about to go down.

I have seen chasing when driving to work in the mornings and also watched two bucks fight Tuesday morning in a field in davidson county. But oddly enough no sign what so ever where I'm hunting. I am also hunting public land.

Maybe none of the does have come into heat yet around us. Idk.

I guess the heat map showed davidson county red last weekend, which is highest before peak, and then this weekend it went back down and it never reached peak, but it goes off of reported sightings.

I had a very, very crippled spike, that appeared to be the victim of being hit by a car, making his best attempt at chasing a doe very hard yesterday morning—no way he is ever going to get her, but he was doing everything in his power. I normally let the little one's walk, but I was going to put this little guy down, but with his extremely erratic body movements I never had a shot that I was comfortable with taking.

I'm sitting here watching a huge 8-pointer chasing an absolute slathered wet doe in between my house and the neighbors house...to bad I'm not hunting. I'm on the Davidson/Wilson line.

Had to leave the woods early Monday to work on the house. I got to Percy Warner took the right off of old hickory onto 100. There was a very nice main fram 10 chasing a doe all out by the road. I stopped at the parkng area and checked it out with my binocs. He was a very good deer, not as old as the 8 that got hit by a car last week right down the road. What would you give to get in Percy Warner with a bow?!

Yea, summer time seen a 12 point grazing in a residential neighborhood yard. Its crazy, those deer actually get old enough to get big because no one hunts them. I think the rut is insanely unpredictable this year, my buddy seen a nine pt this morning that had a doe on lockdown, this is what i thout was happening after not seeing any deer this weekend, but who the heck knows. Not me i guess

Watch a small buck pestering a doe out of my bedroom window last night at around 10oclock. She didn't seem to interested. This was off of old hickory blvd.
