Just because it is "rut" doesn't mean everyone is going to see a mature buck, I have seen bucks chasing for over 3 weeks one county North of you. Older bucks I have been seeing for 2 weeks. BTW, For most guys, even the does aren't all over feeders in N Texas and the bucks will be where the girl that is ready is. You miss 3 days of hunting and that is enough time for a doe to come in, get bred and back to normal.
I think you stand a better chance right after the full rut anyway, bucks will log more miles when in search mode.
