I Hunt in Wayne county also BHC and have been wondering the same thing about our farms.. I have some spots that we have been hunting for years that are usually tore up with scrapes and rubs, by this time of year but NOT this year.I hope it is just all happening a little late this time.

Rut is right I would expect it to be here. At check stations, I have seen several of the older bucks all gouged up and with broken antlers. Most of the chasing or trailing I have seen is by young bucks. That is just what I would expect. I hope the weather turns back cold next week. That should produce good sightings. I think we are right on schedule.

Quite often, it all comes down to where you are hunting. I could go on and on telling stories about hunters in the same hunting club, where one or two hunters see everything rut-related and nobody else hunting the same property does. It all comes down to stand location.

Rut seems to be in lockdown in Benton and Carroll.No scrape activity and seems hunting close to bedding areas is key now.Daylight and dark near them is key.They moving good at night even with the slight moon phase.

Clubhead, I agree, according to BSK's Guide to the rut for dummies(I do appreciate the info BSK!). But now have something to look forward to first couple weeks in December tho. My stand location has been on common travel routes & doe use areas.

I have seen more scraping this year than I have in years. Every logging road on my two farms are scraped from one end to the other. We have seen chasing activity every single day up until Sunday, the last day I hunted. The deer have all looked very fat, healthy and happy. Most fun I've ever had deer hunting, and that's saying something.

Scrapes went dead towards the end of last week.
