wrong no offense but i think it will be right around november 10th give or take a few days
remember the weather and the moon have a huge effect on the rut so keep thst in mind the colder the better or should i say hotter the rut will be
good luck!

I tend to agree with lopedog. I've already seen some light chasing, and one really good fight between 8 pointers! It's gonna happen the week before shotgun season.

I have read that the length of daylight hours is what triggers it.The moon and weather just helps.Its normally around the 2nd week in nov here in TN.

Your right 10point.We will have a rut,they just wont be running does as hard due to the heat.We still have a couple of weeks for it to cool down.I'm praying it does!
