That region covers a lot of territory but generally you can draw a line anything south of hwy 90 and bordering those eastern counties along the coast.
You'll get a lot of arguements but that is just speaking in general terms.
The rut usually starts around Thanksgiving along the northern part closer to hwy 90, and the more south you go it gets later as around Christmas and on into January in deep south Texas.
The rut is close, but yet to come in most of south Texas.

I live a bit north of SA and we have tons of deer in our neighborhood. Thanksgiving is the usual rut here. Saw a big 10 pushing a doe last night, so its pretty much on schedule. Out further west at the ranch it usually hits a few weeks later. I'd think south TX is still at least a few weeks off as well.

Hunted Frio County line between Devine and Pearsall this weekend Saturday and Sunday. Saw two bucks chasing. several does running, but also saw bucks still in bachelor groups and they did not push each other off the feeder or show any sideways walking or tilting ears back etc... So at our place near Pearsall some early signs of the rut but probably 7-10 days away from full blown rut.

Good Luck up

I was hunting in Cotulla this past weekend and had a young 12 aggravating a doe until a massive 9 came out and put a stop to his shenanigans. The 9 then started trailing after the doe but wasn't too serious about it and stopped after about 5 min.

I'm fairly close to your location, and for the first time this season I saw a buck Monday evening that was staying really close to a doe. She spooked, and the buck put his nose to the ground and took off right after her.

Pearsall should be full swing around the 10th-12th of December.
