In my neighborhood we have a lot of deer and I notice that the rut just kicked into gear. It usually happens in the beginning of November. Are yall seeing the same thing?

It seems first round came early on my place and the second round is now starting up.


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

Was pretty spot on in southern OK. Very typical to see doe not follow all the same cycle pattern and some hot ones will be around for several weeks. esp if ratios are all out of whack, a second (or third) estrus cycle can occur if not all the doe were bred the first time through.

A week earlier than normal for me. Opening weekend usually doesn't have the rut started, but it did this year

Well hell. I went back to my buck chasing doe pics from last year and they were all from the beginning of November. In the last 5 days or so I've seen 3 bucks chasing. This morning there was a young buck at the gate to the subdivision, he was locked onto a doe. He didn't care that cars were driving by. We only see doe until the rut kicks off then they come out from the golf course, and greenbelts. Just an observation, nothing scientific.

Red, you are South Tx right. Thats always way later than most rest of state. East Tx(north at least) is earlier than most of state like early Nov or earlier ive heard. NW Tx seems closer to mid Nov for most. Personally I dont think the timing of peak breeding varies much at all. You just dont notice it for various reasons and a big reason can be warmer weather can push it more to night.

I didn’t see any chasing until last weekend, so a little late for me. I generally see a second rut in December and have shot several nice deer following does around Christmas. I don’t see how I would have missed the first rut but...

My sister and BIL are hunting in North OK this week. They said that they have seen a ton of deer chasing. That is all they have seen. Deer chasing non-stop. They haven't been able to take a shot because the deer won't stand still for even a second. They have bleated, grunted, rattled and even yelled at them. I'll be headed up Friday.

The rut is on right now where I have been hunting. Logged 19 hunts (3hour sit minimum) so far seen 1 doe a couple of spikes and one 4 point. I consider that a RUT #1
