Yep, way to early for estrus. Wait until the last week in October thru min November. Use something for dressing up a scrape (Doe Pee) like Tinks Mock Scrape.

It's not too early in some parts of the country, just depends upon if you have a hot doe in the area.....

Bucks are already laying scrapes down here in Carolina..

Have you got any hot does???

Way too early, I think you'll spook the deer more than anything. They don't expect a doe to be in heat yet so they'll start to be more cautious than anything else.

big...Where are you located???

Notice the guys saying no are up North, where the rut swings in later...

If you have does with black hocks, they are in so it wouldn't be too early...
