Yes it is. 7 dead deer on I-40 between Nashville and Dickson last Saturday. There had been none the previous two weeks.On Sunday I saw significantly more deer carnage on I24 between Nashville and Clarksville than I did a couple of weeks ago. That tends to be a signal that things are ramping up.
And, not trying to hijack the thread, but it is a good time to remind non-hunting spouses and children that aren't aware of the increased deer movement around the rut that they need to be extra careful wherever they are driving and be on the watch for deer crossing the road for the next few weeks. That includes in some very urban areas in Nashville, etc. It might save someone you love from a terrible crash.Yes it is. 7 dead deer on I-40 between Nashville and Dickson last Saturday.

I want the kill thread back and running.I know it's a bit early but thought I'd go ahead and start one. Post any chasing/rutting activity here. Location and experience please.
I'll start with this...had four does in my front yard yesterday morning. They moved one and 15 minutes later came running back thru with a nice 8pt chasing and grunting the whole time. I'm in Roane County.
