I hunt Williamson, Wilson and Rutherford counties and it seems that the rut has been out of the ordinary this year. We saw allot of activity the first 10 days of November in Williamson but haven't really seen anything heat up yet in Rutherford or Wilson. Strangest rut I have seen in many years.

Are parts of mid TN in what is called a "Trickle Rut" due to the extreme warm temps? And if so, can we still expect things to heat up in the next 2-3 weeks?

I spent about 30 hours in the stand from Thanksgiving through that Sunday, in three different mid TN counties and only saw one small 6 pt and a doe...oh yeah, and a 5' black snake sunning itself in a logging road.
