most midwestern states have an expanding deer herd and i think the rut will get later and later with so many does.a really good prolonged cold snap would help out.so,im guessing a late rut unless it gets cold and stays cold.

My guess, the same as it's been the last 100 years or so.

If I had my choice I'd be out there every day from the last week in October through November, that way I know I won't miss it.

Alsheimer is predicting a classic rut. So i would agree with what SuperRedHawk said.

Here's to you finding the rut the same as the last hundred years

And don't we all wish we could be in a tree Oct 27th thru Nov 24th. When I make my millions I'll just have to take the whole month off and try that

Last year I had the whole month of October, and the first 3 weeks in November off, to bad it was because I was laid off, but it did work out for hunting.

I don't care the year and I can't control the weather but I always got to be in my stand Nov 4th thru the 9th. Seemed a lil late last year. They were still chasing during gun which is week before Thanksgiving. But a day or two plus or minus of this is pretty consistent. So I always take off the first week of Nov. to be sure.

The rut will happen about the same time it always does. The intensity of it depends on the temp. more than anything that I have seen over the last 35 years of bow hunting. I will hunt it like I have for the past 12 years or so, from Oct. 30 until Nov. 28 I will be in a tree everyday unless I'm driving to another state to be in a tree. If I tag out I will use the camara

I'm pulling for the 1st week of Nov to be the peak of chasing. I'm off that whole week. That is also the dark phase of the moon, which can somewhat slow the nighttime chasing activity. So, we shall see! Last year's rut was affected greatly by the amount of crops still in, around here anyway. The rut obviously happened, but I think alot of the classic chasing happened behind the cover of cornstalks.
