Due to wedding and daughters first birthday i am missing this past weekend at the lease which is a little south of George West in Live Oak County and my daughters first birthday is this weekend so i will miss that to. Typically from what i understand Rut starts in that area around the 15 or so of December. Is anyone in that are already seeing any rut signs as i do not want to miss the rut. Thanks for the help.
I was invited to hunt on a friend's lease just south of Carrizo Springs last weekend and we started seeing signs of rut - mostly among the younger bucks, but also with the lack of the older and bigger bucks making appearances like they have for the last few months on cameras.
They were talking that next week should be the height of the rut - between the short daylight and the moon phase, it's the best time for it.
