Working at the lease yesterday afternoon, Matagorda county, saw a hard horn buck standing over a doe. Watched them for a few minutes then the doe got up and ran off, few seconds later the buck was hot on her tail. Seems a bit early for rut activity.

Few years ago i watched a very nice 8 point following a doe a long ways and she was not liking it . This was Denton county in mid Oct.He had his nose to ground wasnt even looking at her the whole time. Almost got am arrow in him but he stopped just short of my killzone
There is a subspecies of WT think it's called the coastal prairie not positive that rut a good month earlier than their relatives.. I think it's the first week of October so very likley your seeing pre rut signs..

All the brazoria co deer rut hardest the first 2 weeks of sept.
All the theory on hours of sunlight determining rut timing, is BS.
