Rut Activity

Wanted to start a thread for everyone to post the state of rut activity in their area.

We hunt Area 2. Specifically Desoto Parish near Pelican/Pleasant Hill. At present, we are not seeing any signs of the rut despite the recent Article by Dave Moreland that they rut would be kicking in early. I worry that we have already missed it

Anyone else?

From Deridder to South of Dequincy then west to Texas there is def. an early rut. Have seen multiple scrape lines, swollen necks on camera and chasing since second weekend of bow season. Always a second rut right around or after thanksgiving as well.

Im hunting in Mansfield and on opening day we just started finding scrapes and rubs. My dad shot a cow horn spike and the tarsal glands are just starting to turn dark brown. I live in South Louisiana so keep me posted. will be heading up there when i get back in from offshore on the 15th.

good luck.

We killed two bucks that were chasing does in Kistashie, Red Dirt MWA. Glands were black and necks were swollen. A buddy of ours watched a 4-point go right up to a rub before he shot him.

Starting to see some scraping activity. Had one small buck pushing a doe well before shooting light this weekend.
