The first 10 days of November always seem to have more movement in our area as well. BUT, this is when I'm also doing the most hunting, so I may be seeing more because I'm hunting more.
One of the guys in the club to our south claimed the rut was done and over with by November, he swears it reached its' peak in early October. He made this claim last year as well I think. Bases it on camera surveys - and the fact they don't see much in November. But then you stick 14 guys on 150 acres and deer tend to move away.
