I hunt in Wayne county and strangely enough bucks of all ages are still being spotted runnin together.. also scrapes are still very scarce... Typically around the first of November the woods fill with scrapes and we start gettin pics of bucks working them, fighting, etc.
I'm just curious if anyone is experiencing similar things or if this is jus something going on our place?

I have hunted GA, KY, and here in TN so far where there should have been rut activity in all while I was in the woods and every one seemed to be behind. It is hard to say with 100% certainty that it is with only getting a snap shot view, but everything and everyone I interact with thinks it is 3-4 weeks behind for some reason. Strange dang year.

So if I have a chance to head up for their second gun season it may be worth the trip?

I knew when I left Monday a week ago it wasn't totally cranked up, but I really thought you all would hit it right this past weekend.

There was about 10-12 people at the lease in Wayne county and the only deer I know of being seen was a spike that one of the guys daughter shot and could not find. Rut has not started if u ask me

around here I have seen groups of does, does with fawns, does being followed, does being chased, and bucks roaming. Seems mixed up but the rut is happening here, just not completely sure if peak breeding has happened yet or not.
