Any rut updates in Van Zandt County? I was out last weekend and really did not see any signs that it has started yet…..

Im north of Athens. I’m wrong a lot, but I always think rut is going on right at opening day. Saturday is saw 2 bucks. One was with a yearling doe. They other had his nose to the ground moving quickly.

Saw a group of doe Sunday. Nothing trailing them.

your area and a little north used to be around that time. Now that we are further north... it seems to be closer to Thanksgiving. I saw no dead dear on the 80 mile run to camp. A friend was up near Nacona and said the same.

One shot is all it should take.

Opening weekend in Smith County, my wife shot her buck while he was following a couple of does. No swelling in the neck, but he was obviously interested in the does. Every game cam picture has the bucks and does all hanging out around the feeder and in the food plot like they are all buddies. No activity at all on the camera. I honestly don't know if the rut was early, or if it was opening weekend, or if it's still coming.

The full moon this week will set the rut in full swing in VZ, Kaufman and Hunt. I have been hunting Kaufman county for 3 years now and it usually starts around the 10th. Got trail cam pics of a really nice 10 point following a doe this past Friday.


Born to hunt and fish.
