This may have been brought up before but with 12 days of bow season between the muzzle and rifle season, it is possible that the heat of the rut will happen during this time period? It would appear to me that there should be quit a bit chasing going on sometime between Nov. 10-21st, which is all bow season.

What do you think.

The best activity I've seen in TN seems to always hit the end of and right after the 1st MZ season and lasts about a week. November 12th was been a good day for me 3yrs in a row.

I just think that 12 day period is too long not to see any rutting activity. Nomally I have a muzzleloader or gun in my hand when I see rutting activity but this year I think it will be a bow.

Oneshot, Like these guys stated some of the most intense rutting/chasing has gone on during that period between the two gun seasons. Grab a bow and hold onto your seat, it's a great time of year to be in the woods.

Yup! I agree..But there is a time in October when it seems just as hot.

Not in our area of the state, some pre-rut activity, searching, roaming, but not good rutting.....

This is going to sound a little drastic, but I usually hunt north to south during the first two weeks of Nov. I start off in Clarksville and end up in Columbia. I do think as we go south through the state there are a few days difference in the phases, but that's just my supposition - not fact.

I have hunted from Wayne county to Stewart county , and this period seems to be the best time to be in the woods with a bow in my opinion .
