You should be good. I think rut has started there, but colder weather will keep 'em on the move. Good luck.

Probably not in heavy rain, but I hunted the opener and saw about 20 that morning and my blind only overlooks about three acres. They didn't seem bothered much at all. Bucks and does; they fed, they checked, and they chased some and they moved through. They'll particularly move in between showers.

Were hunting south of goldthwaite not to far from the river and nothing responded to rattling yesterday afternoon from 2-330 saw 3 different young bucks from 530-615. The first responded to the grunt when he was about to leave. It turned him around and he came out for me to get a better look. The next one I saw a bumped the horns together to see how he reacted and he bolted like he'd had his but whipped before and he didn't want any part of it. The last one I saw was 615ish and he had some tall tines I just couldn't tell how wide or how many points....

Had two mature bucks on a hot doe this afternoon. Bigger one might have been broken up already. Hope for better looks tomorrow

I will elaborate on what I've seen. Halloween, the bucks were searching like crazy, all bucks including the old ones. Early afternoon of November 6th while driving in, my daughter and I saw four separate mature bucks that had isolated does apart from Evant to Priddy. You know the places they segregate them, open pastures, by the road, fence corners, etc. Places they aren't likely to run into other deer and can do their thing. Like clockwork, every year. We are on the downhill slide of the first rut. But, it continue to be good through at least Thanksgiving because of the high number of does that need to be bred.
