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.

Hey BSK you got any info on the rut in sumner and giles county . I went this morning in sumner county didnt see a single deer father saw a small buck about 900 yards away from me and our cams went way down from 150 to 200 pics a week down to less than 50 between 2 cams. I dont think the rut has come and gone here yet though. As I was coming out of the woods I found 2 scrapes that I know 100% for sure were not there the day before. Same on another farm I have in sumner found a scrape there last week but only saw one deer the whole week I hung a tinks scrape bomb on that scrape and boy I hunted there this afternoon and those bucks are tearing it up [censored] near have a hold dug in the ground . I moved my cams to the scrapes . But Id like to have your input on info in those 2 counties
