Rut Signs?!

Postby Weekend Woodsmen » Mon Oct 21, 2013 11:34 am

Has anyone been seeing any rut signs yet this year? We have seen very minimal deer activity and no signs of the rut. We are hunting out of NE Ohio. We had a big 9 point show up on camera the other day but other than that we haven't been seeing much as all. Has anyone else been seeing any signs of things heating up?!

It's Oct 31st today. Last weekend I started to see a few scrapes along with some bucks moving through the woods with their noses down. Seemed to be following a scent trail. Yesterday the scrapes were refreshed, so things seem to be picking up. Traditionally for me anyway, now threw the second week in November are good times to hunt all day. I hunt in northern Trumbull county and parts of Lake.
