Wisconsin I can see, they had some snow in Northern WI a couple weeks ago. Here in IL I think the bucks are cruising, but the does are showing no sign of interest, give it a couple more days, then you might see it really take off!

We saw some bucks chasing does over in west central IL last weekend...but that's exactly what they're doing...chasing. This weekend should be a step above that and next weekend they should be in full rut. Two more days of work...just two more days of work.

Here in SW Ohio and SE Indiana, the bucks are certainly cruising!!! Last Sunday morning, I had three bucks come in to my rattling, and 2 bucks sparred a little, one buck made 2 scrapes and the third buck chased them away. I think we are seeing increased activity, and the next couple of weeks should be AWESOME!!!!

In NW Ohio here and have not been in my stand in a week. Damb work anyways[:@], daylight savings time just messes up my opportunities during the week.

I hunt my Fathers farm and from what I can tell it is still slow here.

Will be going out to play in this damb rain today maybe I will post some better news this evening.
