The rut is just starting so I was shocked. I saw a nice mature buck in a field last week with a doe already. They should be chasing but he had already had her. Have yall seen any of this lately?

This buck has been with this doe all summer. Most of the pics I have with him she is there also. Not sure if they are related or not but have not seen any sign of an early rut on my place. Most of the bucks are still grouped up that I have seen.

My two biggest bucks are not with their groups anymore, so it's got to be getting close to the rut. I hope it holds off for 10 more days.

My bucks split up a week ago. I still catch them on cam but there is always a doe or two with them now.
Gonzales County near I-10 if that matters.

What part of the state?

Texas is big, the rut occurs over a large period of time over the whole state. Our observations and a link someone posted to some TPWD data indicate the peak rut activity in our area begins in late December to early January.

Watched a 4 year old 9 point chase a group of does Saturday afternoon in the rain. The does didn't look at all receptive.

I had a younger buck with a single doe Sunday morning. She came into a hand corn pile and he bedded down behind her. Once he got back on his feet she sprinted away like she didn't want any part of it. He gave a slight chase, but gave up and went in a different direction. Bucks have definitely split on my place, but I don't think the rut has truly started. I am hunting out of Eastland Co.

We hunt in Clay county and they are already chasing pretty hard. Our biggest deer was chasing a hot doe on Saturday evening and then chasing 2 does on Sunday am.

He's too small to do anything, but maybe it is a sign.

I would say the rut comments are useless without stating your counties. Deep south TX (Dimmit County) is late December early January.
