I don't believe I have seen a rut like this in many a year. This morning out working on fence I saw at least 6 Bucks after Does. I just got back to the house and about 30 minutes ago I saw 4 Bucks after the same Doe. None paid any attention to me and I was within 50 yards of them when they came running by.

The serious chasing began here last week. I haven't seen the old tongue out give it all run'em down rut yet but it's close. About a week earlier than normal.

I was hoping someone else was seeing this.

We had it start last week as well. I thought it was a fluke then. But today, it's as hard as I've ever seen a rut. Saw tons of bucks slingin slobber chasing does. All the way back to the ranch from kerrville.

At this rate the major rut will be over by thanksgiving. I have NEVER seen full on rut this early here.

Neither have I. Yesterday afternoon I sat at a feeder " LF for the purest" and saw 4 Bucks after a doe. Running her so hard all 5 had their mouths open and tongues hanging out. Only had a fork horn come to the feeder. Not a single Doe or spike which is what I was after.

Leaving the ranch yesterday there was a buck bedded with a hot doe in the middle of a wide open field. Another buck came charging in as I drove by but they didn't run off. Then a little over an hour later I saw the same thing near Marble Falls. Crazy

I anticipate some early fawning this next year.

So much for that malarkey that biologists try to pass off about the rut being triggered by length of the day. That is a fixed regimen each year.

While we were hunting down south last weekend my mom texted me that there was a nice 8pt running a doe in circles in their back yard, they live in a subdivision with fenced yards on 1/2-1 acre lots. That was Guadalupe co.

Good to hear, but I'm not seeing it in my area. Saw three does out and about without any bucks around yesterday.
