Yesterday afternoon I had a group of 4 (momma, two young doe, and a button)come in. They were running around in the woods chasing each other. I thought they were playing at first but then I realized that the mother was trying to get rid of the youngsters. She was continually checking their hind-sides and would chase them away from her when they would try to get close. With that said, I am assuming that either the momma or the young ones are about to come into estrous. However this is a total guess and could be way off

Saw several smaller bucks chasing does around this past weekend in SE Fayette county.My deer sightings have picked up a good bit lately but all bucks have been 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 years old. Hopefully some of the big boys will step up to the plate soon.

I'm fortunate that I live in Fayette County and get to witness deer activity closeup in my backyard, so to speak, even at night. The last 5 days I've seen at least 6 shooter bucks in my backyard foodplot. All seem to be either tending or pestering does. They did stop to eat occasionally when the does were feeding also. One large buck actually chased 17 deer out of the food plot, and it appeared it was just out of meanness, as he didn't seem to be particularly interested in any one doe. I have floodlights on the plot, and its rare to see a shooter in the plot. So something has changed to see so many in a short time-frame. I actually saw 3 different shooters last night in a 2 hr stretch.

I've hunted everyday since opening day of gun season . On the 19th I had 6 bucks in the field. All were small racks. Except one. He was only 2.5 yr old. The oldest was keeping the smaller ones away from the does. But there necks weren't swallin. Then since then I have only seen does. I don't think they have started here. That warm front messed them up .

Literally at night after legal shooting hours? What time? Reason I ask is my trail cams are picking some "shooters" up at night, but not so much during the daylight. Some, but nothing like at night. Thanks for the clarification.

Still nothing 3.5+ at our places in rossville. Couple 2.5's. Heard some big one were running around at night. Hopefully this cold upcoming morning temps will get them moving. Some fresh rubs found today but only small scrapes. Fingers crossed as I'm hunting the next 3 days.

I'm a several miles east of you folks in Fayette county but the last several days have seen quite a lot of chasing, and pestering by young bucks. They're still rubbing, working scrapes, and whipping branches (almost out of sheer frustration) so that's some of what makes me think it hasn't busted wide open just yet.

On the other hand, have heard of a few good bucks hit the ground here and there that were running does so feel we're darn close.

I've had big bucks after does a couple of times around the Hardeman/Fayette County lines. I believe the first handful of does is entering estrous now. Several of them I've glassed have hocks that are beginning to darken. I'm still finding fresh scrapes though and watching bucks work them so I don't think the rut is really "the rut" yet. By this weekend and into next week everyone should be seeing some actin provided day time temps don't get crazy.

I'm talking about at night. I don't have trail cameras, but I do have a foodplot withing 10 yards of my backdoor. While I'm up at night, I keep the backyard floodlights on and can see if deer come into the plot. We mostly get does. This time of year, the number of does increases. The buck sightings during daylight hours are rare. Even though I have only 5 acres, I'm surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of acres of undeveloped land.

I should add that during this time of year I'm rarely home during daylight hours. During the week I'm at work and on the weekends I'm hunting, so I have no idea what comes around during the day. I have 2 trailcams and neither of them work worth a crap. I've gotten frustrated and have given up on them. The pic below was taken by my wife when I was out hunting on Saturday. Probably the smallest of the bucks that came by this weekend.

Was out mon-wed. Saw several does and a spike and 8pt both Monday and tuesday. Wed I decided to hunt til 2 since I couldn't evening hunt. Saw spike and 4pt with nose to the ground. 8pt came by casually walking through but not checking. At 10:50 had my first real mature deer show up. Was a 7pt and he wasn't checking either and won't be checking since I laid him down. Probably the oldest deer I've every killed... Post pics later

Last weekend Macon town area absolutely no chasing. Matter of fact, the does and yearlings/fawns were herded up. I set my boys up at an ambush point and then did a big loop and started pushing through everything I could find. Busted up 3 separate groups, one of 10 or 12, one of 8 or 9, another of 5. They lined out for the ambush point but never slowed down. My boys said they got a good view but NO bucks.

What I did find was scrapes. I mean, everywhere. 5 were over 4 feet across, dozens in the 2 feet size and the 12 inch to 18 inch ones were everywhere, seen 30 or 40 of them. All of this AFTER opening day.

What does that mean?

I killed a 9pt on Friday and a better 8 pt on Saturday. Both were chasing. The 9pt had 2 other small bucks in tow, and they were absolutely wearing the doe out. Occasionally the buck would stop and charge the others, grunt a little, and even did a few wheezes. Also saw a few on Saturday being chased by small bucks. Oh,this was all in Hardeman, not Fayette.

I'd say its on, but this warm weather probably has them screwed up a bit as far as daytime activity.

I hunted just inside the Hardeman County line from Fayette this morning with my buddy. We set up in a long creek bed and did some rattle/grunt calling a few times for the first hour and a half. Saw nothing. At about 8:45 or so, we split up.

He stayed in the creek bottom, farther down, and I went up to a cutover area that usually has lots of buck sign and trails. He ended up jumping a small doe in the creek bed, and later had 2 mid-sized does cross the creek casually in front of him. I saw zero deer, and neither of us saw any bucks.

Needless to say, this didn't meet our expectations for this time of year...

I hunted in Fayette County just past Oakland this am & saw no deer.
I have been shut out on my last few hunts actually. I would have thought they would be on the move with slightly colder temps & after heavy rain.

My buck sightings in the backyard have decreased dramatically in the past 7-10 days. Could be weather related, might be at a lull or mid-point in the rut, or might be related to decrease in doe sightings. The doe sightings have decreased as well and the does are far more skittish than they were prior to Thanksgiving. I'd suspect that's a result of increases in hunting pressure the last couple of weeks. I'll be giving it another shot this weekend.

In lockdown. Most chasing occurred at night. Have very few scrapes still open. Most covered in leaves. I suspect the warm temps and them getting some rest has to do with little movement. Most that we have seen which has still been few were in the thick stuff. Hopefully Tuesdays low temps back in the 20's will kick it up again.

I saw a decent buck chasing on Candaville in Fayette Co yesterday afternoon. Several does were trying to avoid the fracus. Also saw a buck cruising in Collierville, he crossed Houston Levee around 0730am.

Dang warm and wet weather is going to stick around through the weekend.

You didn't miss much I don't think. Unless you enjoy sitting in a lightning storm watching it rain so hard you can't see out of the blind!

I went this afternoon and it was pretty much a bust. Saw a 4 pointer.

Rossville.....Saw a doe being chased by 2 bucks yesterday on my way to my stand. She was hauling and a nice shooter was on her heels, trailing 20 yds behind them was a spike. They were definitely moving yesterday.

Good Luck Swamphunter....I plan on being back out first thing in the morning. At sunset last night I had a spike walk in on me. He was limping pretty good and his face was beat up. Looked like he just got his butt whipped.

been hunting all week. good news bad news. Still seeing some chasing but also seeing does in large groups and some bucks just feeding and not messing with the does. maybe we are at the tail end. saw 10 does yesterday afternoon all together. no bucks in sight. Saw 18 does this morning and 1 nice buck messing with 2 does for a bit then just followed them into the bedding area. Nice young 6 point this afternoon just walking and feeding and not a care in the world. will see what tomorrow holds. sure there are some hot does around and hopefully they will drag out a big guy to end my season.

5 does, 3 fawns, and 2 small bucks. No chasing this morning. All deer went into the same area and the stand was shuffled into another new spot. From my vantage point this morning I figured out what should be a crackerjack hot spot. I'll pull my climber tomorrow and put up a hangon there. It may not pan out this year but look out next year.

A monstor buck was chasing 2 does at the I40/385 ramp today and my neighborhood 150"er was 4 houses down from me midday today.

I saw 2 little buck chasing a doe on Tuesday morning on the Shelby/Fayette line. Yesterday saw lots of deer movement along 240 and I-40.

This afternoon I saw a mid sized 6 point walking out in the open where I rarely see deer.
