Default SE Pa rut sign

I'm starting to see scrapes appearing in my (semi new) area, as well as some brand new rubs! I have not hunted this spot yet this season. I wanted to keep this spot as quiet as I can, and only hunt it during the rut. Things "should" be getting started this week and next! I AM PUMPED!!!

Scrapes should be popping up all over. I saw my first about 4 weeks ago. Believe it or not.

Lets hope it heats up soon in PA. Things havent been good for me. Trying a new area this week.

Friend rattled in 2 bucks yesterday. Both came out into a open clover field and when they saw eachother locked horns. One was a decent 8 and the other was a big 6 that we have been watching. Friend said the 6 came in from a few hundred yards with his hair all standing up and side stepping as soon as he saw the other buck.

That right there is what I was thinking. Last year was nonexistant for me as well.
