Last weekend bucks still together. Just curious what everyone else is seeing.

Next to you in Cooke, close to Roston. Bucks are rutting. Opening weekend my friend shot a 6 1/2+ year old buck who smelled like rut like I have never experienced. Bucks are cruising and feeders are not being hit. I think the rut is a little off this year with the warm weather but the bucks are ready from what we have seen.

Based on camera it was on past 2 weeks. Then tonight none of us saw anything. Not even a doe. Crazy. Had a big boy show up 11/9 and not show up again so its been on. Had 12+ different bucks hit me while gone.

Last weekend, we got 2 nice bucks off my place South of Bowie. Both in the 130's. One was sniffing a trail with its nose to the ground. Another had a tip broken off of an antler.

Today, a hunter watched a nice buck thrashing up some branches on an oak.

I figure it's on.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

South of you it is on. I've been watching bucks chasing almost ever sit for the last 3 weeks. Hasn't slowed down much at all. Montague is probably the same. I should add, the only time it has slowed is when the temps got up in the 80s. I figure they were doing their thing after dark. Morning hunts have been the most productive.

Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.

Watching my cameras in Wise this morning it’s still on a bit. Have had 5 different bucks at a feeder running does since daylight. 3 of those bucks I’ve never seen before and run cameras year round.

Unfortunately nothing that makes me want to get in the truck and drive out there.
