Just furious as of how it differs from one part of the state to the other.

In my area I have seen hard chasing from the first of November and the latest I have seen is February 17th.
My uncle swears that he seen 6 hornless bucks butting heads and boxing trying to mount a doe on the opening day of turkey season and he will not lie about it.

I just made a post under the topic " Who hunts ". Yesterday morning around 1100 saw a huge 8-10 point chasing two does aggressively. The doe's were running like greyhound. this was a chase my friend. First aggressive one I have seen this year. I hunt in Hardeman County close to Bolivar, TN.

Been very wierd for me this year.I've logged some good hours in the woods this year and have not seen any chaising. The bucks that ive seen have been cruising by themselves or just out nibbling. Evenmore strange I have not seen any does the past 5 hunts ive been on this past weekend through last week.THis is odd because the certain farm is usually rampid with does.Just small bucks andthat 3.5 year old buck I shot Saturday.

Late January in montgumery co. Also I found a newborn baby fawn still with afterbirth on the ground in early September while scouting. So that would have been a fawn conceived in February/March? That was in sumner co 3 years ago.

I am not seeing the number of does right now as earlier in the season. It is like they have separated much like the bucks have. Traditionally I hardly ever see a single does but more in bunches of 3-8 at a time. My theory is with the over abundance of does the estrus cycle will run through March making the actual Rut prolonged. This results in less aggressive behavior by the Bucks since does come into estrus periodically vs all at one time or within a typically 3 week period. that is why in October many does still have yearlings with them. I have Turkey hunted in April and still find the occassional buck with antlers running through woods.

Two weeks after season ended about 6-7 years ago. Went in to retrieve stands and watched a big 8 point running a group of does all over the field, he then ran off a six point. I have a video of that somewhere in my stash, need to find it and post it.

Sounds like he may have possibly saw a Doe family group, as they will box and mount each other, show of dominance is whats being displayed?

No he said the 6 all had bloody nubs from having shed antlers, one would mount the doe and another would butt him off and fight and try to mount himself.

Ive seen it the last weekend of the season the past 2 years. My friend killed a 140" ten the last day of the season 4 years ago. This is all in Putnam co.

A friend of mine is on stand now in the mountains of Marion Co. And said that they are running like rabbits. Seen 4 different bucks chasing a doe so far....his buddy killed a mature buck yesterday morning.
