Thought the rut would have already been in full swing this last weekend. Shows how much I know. Well the question is this when do you bow hunters predict the rut to be in full swing? All replies welcome and appreciated. I'm gonna cast my vote as three days before and after 11/19/02

From the little I've seen and heard other guys talk about I would say right now. I've seen bucks chasing hard. On eof the guys I work with said he saw two bucks chasing one doe yesterday.

I'm hoping it's still strong on the 19th. The 20th is the 'rutting' full moon. They have been walking and looking since Halloween. If the bucks are still chasing it's coming on. With all the deer these days the breeding season is spread out more than ever. Need to catch a big one walking with a doe or looking for his next partner. It's happening hard right now.
