When I hunted there, it seemed to always fall on Thanksgiving weekend. Here in Alabama, rut starts in late December, early January. That's why the state extended the season to Feb 10th.

Seen 2 bucks in rains county chasing does over the weekend. 1 of which was very good. I would say things are starting to heat up for sure.

Archer Co. Saw two really nice mature bucks this weekend. Very content just eating corn and hanging out. Not in a hurry at all. Three bucks at the feeder at the same time, although only one in the pen. The dominant one. I hope they hold off til opening weekend. I've got two nice shooters coming in every day.

They're chasing in Hays/Travis Counties too. Have been for over a week now.

Sure glad I'm hunting south and a mid-December rut.

I figure some young bucks running around, because the change in testosterone levels.

Bucks might be ready, but highly doubt that does are already playing the game.

Exactly. Well, in most areas of the state. On the mid to upper coast the rut is mostly over.

But, what I'm seeing is sparring matches over food. And scraping activity and young bucks chasing does as happens in pre-rut. My mature bucks are more interested in eating now than anything else. Which makes October the best month to kill a trophy buck.

Does are in really good shape in Mills County. I saw lots of fresh dead deer between Sweetwater and Goldthwaite this weekend on the highways and saw a couple of chases too. I suspect we're going to have an early rut that is going to trickle rather than boom. I wouldn't miss the rifle-opener, it's likely to be near peak.
