Saw a lot of movement this morning but zero rutting activity. None of the scrapes have been hit in a few days. Not sure what to think.

If the peak rut has already hit, the deer here in haywood havnt realized it. I havnt seen a scrape since before muzzleload season. The rubs are around, but havnt started heating up yet. I've seen small bucks starting to have black glands, but from pics of bigger bucks, no such sign. Big bucks still moving at midnight on my cameras. Plenty of spikes and 4 pts roaming between daylight and 8am. My guess is we are "behind schedule" this year from the warmer weather patterns. Deer don't have a calendar. Biology plays a major part in the breeding cycle, but cool weather tells them its winter, not the month on our calendars. With this cold spell, things should pick up.

I shot my first buck during muzzleloader that was checking a scrape, my second buck was chasing a doe, his torsel glands weren't very black at all.

I have seen a bunch of bucks crusing, 90% of them have been 1.1/2 olds. Been seeing a high number of does with young ones following them.

There has been alot of nite movement at the scrapes were my cameras are.

So is it at its peek, I don't think so buts its sure on their minds.

First signs of chasing were on Nov. 5. killed a 8 pt Nov 12 chasing. Last week have seen no does & only two 1.5yr old bucks I just been gauging the rut by timing estimates given on thsi site. I am by no means the expert!
