Default Rut sign

Here in semo, we are starting to see the early signs of the rut. We are starting to find a few rubs and a few scrapes popping up thru the woods. My brother seen a small spike chasing a doe around a field a few days ago. I was curious if you guys are starting to see signs of the magical "rut" that brings the big boys out to play during daylight hours. During full blown rut, its a fun time to be in the woods!

Haven't seen any sign of the rut up here in northern Missouri... But then again, I haven't been hunting since last Saturday night...

Going out for the first time Saturday AM for early M/L. No bow hunting for me this fall, it looks like. Typically we see very little activity until the very end of October and beginning of November. By November 1st-10th, it's as if someone turned on the firehose and bucks are running does and scraping like crazy. It continues right through Thanksgiving around here. If I go out scouting now, I'm usually disappointed when I do not see rubs in typical spots and scrapes in spots they've used for years. But I now have learned that you just need a little more patience and "presto" they'll be there again just like every other year, come the magic time.

I'm still planning to hit PA from Nov 1-11. We normally hit a bit of pre-rut then full rut 8-11th. There are plenty of scrapes and rub lines to chose from and having hunted 40 years there I pretty much know where to set up. We will have a new hunter in camp and will help gt him set up. PA will be my last hunt of the year so hopefully it ends on a high note. I hope everyone connects this year and hunts safely and smartly! Good luck to all!

Haven't seen anything exciting yet here in Kansas. The last three times I've sat all I've seen is a mouse, seven coons, and a woodpecker.

Sounds a bit like my sits this past weekend. Day one; a red fox, a possum and lots of squirrels. Day two; tons of squirrels, ducks, geese and herons. Did see some deer driving to my hunting spot......
