I was reading your post in a thread regarding the lock down phase of the rut, and that brought up a couple questions I had for you.

In the area in hunt, I just started seeing rubs and scrapes opening weekend of gun season, and more and more popping up everyday, also I'm just now seeing smaller bucks chase the does, before last weekend, this area was almost dead, similar to the October lull. What is everything running
late in my area? Or am I not seeing the big picture?

Also I'm the last couple years, I've been trying to hunt one mature buck on the property, and before this year, he would stay running about the last weekend of sherry, and this year, I thought someone may have got him, cause I want seeing any of his sign, but in the last week I'm starting to see his huge rubs again. What up with that.

In any given area, peak breeding will occur on or about the same dates every year. However, weather and other environmental factors can make it appear to the daylight observer that the rut is early or late, sometimes changing by as much as 3 weeks from year to year.

Impossible to say about an individual mature buck. But often, like with bass fishing, a good spot is a good spot. Take out one big fish and another takes its place. Take out a mature buck and another will assume his patterns.
