I don't get to hunt much due to work and a newborn. I have been out 6 times this year and have just been seeing does. That's all I have on my trail camera too. The bucks that I was getting pics of have disappeared it seems. Anyone seeing any rutting action in east tn? Just curious if anyone has been rattling or grunting and if you have been having any luck. I plan on hunting hard this week.

I have found that peak breeding happens around 2nd week of Dec around south Knox county. As soon as I get back to TN I'm going to hit west TN thru thanksgiving weekend then get back to east tn and catch the action heating up there. Best of luck to you!

I keep finding new rubs and scrapes. I'm guessing still in the per rut. This is up in Campbell county.

I've had to work all weekend but the report from my brother was that he saw a couple young bucks yesterday. Both were with does. He said they weren't doing any chasing but they were grunting some. I have always seen the most action here around Thanksgiving.

Around wartburg we have had active scrapes for over two weeks now. My brother in law killed a buck last week chasing a doe, another friend killed an 11 point yesterday on the trail of a doe. He missed the first shot, and the buck would not leave the doe. Killed it on the second shot. I came out of the woods yesterday into a clear cut and had a buck chasing a doe 50 yards away into and out of the clear cut. Several bucks that have been killed in the last two weeks have had blown tarsals and the necks are fully swollen.
