Just got back Monday. Rut is on. But no responses to horns or vocalizations, and our buck:doe ratio is 1:1, maybe 1.5 to 1. Observations were limited, as our place is so wet we really couldn't get around the ranch much. Had a 160+ come in checking does about 8:30 Monday morning, by the house. Sniffed around a little and left. We'll be back on the 28th if it doesn't rain much between now and then. I believe the first does cycled after the last full moon and we're in a bit of a lull right now. Next full moon (The Wolf Moon) comes January 1-2 and is a Supermoon. The week after should be on fire.
I was down in Webb last week. Saw some fighting among small bucks. Saw 2 really nice ones and lots of chasing From Tuesday Through Thursday then it shutdown. Got a few deer they wanted out of there and javalina. Javalina wasn't bad in tacos.

Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.
