Tipton County. Still not sure if it's related to rut activity or not but, when I was in the stand this morning I had a doe run in like she was on fire and she stopped right under my stand for a minute and she was breathing real heavy. She was also looking back towards where she came in at. Maybe it was just dogs chasing her but I didnt hear any barking or anything.

If it would have been November instead of October I would have swore a buck was chasing her. I didnt shoot her just cause I wanted to see what else was behind her. That was the only deer I saw from daylight to 10 a.m.

Nice thread by the way UT Grad.
I havent seen any scrapes and only two rubs to speak of.

Rut will be wide open when muzzleloader opens in smith/ jackson counties. Usually going strong by the 15th. That being said trailcam pics showed a dramatic increase on oct. 14,15 of this year. Young bucks starting to mess with does a little. Older deer not moving so much yet. Its coming and gonna be an awesome year!!

A local that hunts on our lease in Marshall County swears the rut is going to come early in that area. He's been seeing scraps, rubs the buck he killed had smelly tarsals.
