Rut is just about completely over in my area (western Humphreys County). We have no second rut.
so your saying all the does got bred in their first cycle if thats the case you have way more bucks than does.


Even in areas with more does than bucks, the vast majority of does get bred their first cycle. From what I have seen biologically, the "2nd rut" is more of a chemically induced "false" rut than a real rut, in that although bucks show a distinct peak in chasing about a month after the peak of breeding, few actual conceptions result.

But yes, locally we have about 0.8 does per buck, and the sex ratio has been that way (very locally) for a couple of years.




From a males point of view your bucks are going somewhere else for the second rut then.


HA! Surprisingly, they don't leave. They just go VERY nocturnal. \:\(

We seem to always have a second surge of chasing right around Christmas in Northern Lincoln Co.

I'm betting the 2nd rut will be starting anytime now in Rutherford Co. - 28 days after rutting activing was first sighted.
I've seen decent 3rd rut activity in the past on one farm I hunt....killed a pretty nice 8 pt. a several yrs back right around the first of Jan. that was hot on a doe (back when the gun season was a week longer).

where are you hunting at in Rutherford. I am hunting near Readyville, but this is my first year, so I am just learning the deer. Scrapes have been dry on my place for a week or so, but I feel like we may get a second dose here pretty soon if it cools down some.

HMM was going to go to Giles this weekend, to give my place a break, but may have to change my mind. BTW the gun season is back to its old length this year. It closes on Jan. 6th. Juvenile part 2 on the 12th and 13th.
