Good question. It actually crossed my mind this afternoon that maybe the rut was earlier this month because for two days now my son and I haven't seen any activity that would indicate there was a rut on. However last weekend I saw a couple bucks running around in late afternoon. The property owner told me today that she was seeing this one monster buck the last couple weeks. So I dunno, it is really weird right now. I am seeing very little activity with both does and bucks. I am taking Wednesday off from work, so I'll have Wednesday, Friday and Saturday to hunt and hopefully I'll see more activity. Then I also have Monday, November 29th off from work for Shotgun opener. Somethings gotta give!
My buddy killed a huge 8-point (no brow tines) on Monday down by Hocking Hills and our friend hunting with him shot a 10-point on the same property the day before. They said the bucks were running the does. My other buddy shot a 12 pointer last week too. Most of the buck kills I heard happened last week. The other thing about the past couple weeks is that the weather was cooler, so maybe that had them moving more.
Good luck to ya!
