About this time last year the rut was going strong we would use our grunt calls and mature mature would come running in, this year totally it's almost like a switch was turned off seeing nothing but small bucks an were an AR county so it's been slow and long hours in the blind deer have been hitting our feeders but just for a few nibbles and they leave. So I hoping we get an artic blast to get rid of this green vegetation before the second rut starts which is usually the first two weeks of january. But yes the late season is pretty good if everything has had a hardfreeze they hit the corn hard not common our lease which is about 160acres to see about 20 deer in a sitting. Hope this helps
I noticed the same thing as far as the deer hitting the corn when I went in Nov. Two mature bucks were killed after thanksgiving weekend and both were swoll up and fat, fattest I've seen literally chunks of fat were falling off we were skinning them. The green is good for the deer but makes it a little harder to hunt.
