Be doing some hunting this weekend in wise county and curious, is the rut pretty much over and done or? Normally hunt west texas and sure its not nearly as late in the season around wise as it is out west. Thanks

I heard it was 2 weeks ago but I never saw any chasing. Had a buck and doe on camera together yesterday for the first time. Historically it’s usually from now until first week of December at my place.

Sitting in the stand now sweating. Hoping the front tonight has them moving tomorrow.

Awesome, thanks and good luck! Hoping they are chasing or just moving in general.. I wish the cool weather would stick around for the weekend, looks to be warm and wet bang

Have only gotten a glimpse of a hog so far, but it’s just now getting to be time. Wind has switched to the north but isn’t blowing hard.

I hunted on the edge of Jack/Young County this past weekend. Rut was in full swing there.

I’ve been betting on tomorrow being the day. No moon, much colder, not much wind, solunar is positive. Planning to hunt dawn to dusk unless we can get a trigger pulled sooner. Have my blood thirsty daughter sitting next to me.

Second rut will kick in next week. Still does in and chasing in Cooke County.

Peak of rut is always around November 16th.




I'm the player to be named later.

Rut was on last weekend. Does are scared and bucks moving long distances. Usually lasts until Dec. We still never get bucks on corn ever in Montague period.

I haven’t had a mature buck on corn since the 2nd week of Oct. They usually come back to it around Christmas though they always hit it if we have ice or snow.

Shocked how little activity I’m seeing but hopeful today is good.

Everything has been showing back up to the feeders since Monday night, I'd say it is winding down

Saw a good buck in hot pursuit this morning. Unfortunately he was 700 yards away and headed the wrong way. Saw two other young bucks, one of which tried to check an unresponsive doe (she still had a fawn with her which is late). Underdressed and got cold so ran into town to warm up. On the way out saw that same young buck almost a mile from where I saw him 2 hours earlier.

I’d say they’re still on the move but would sure like to see my mature bucks of fall come home.

I had 6 bucks on a hot doe yesterday morning. Had to watch 2 real nice bucks on neighboring property, the other 4 were running so hard I couldn’t get a shot. Never thought that would happen.

My top target buck showed up on camera this morning for the first time since Sept 30. Maybe they’re starting to come home.
