Default Highland County, Virginia

Heading out to Highland County for early muzzleloader. Can anybody tell when I can expect the rut to come in?

I'm not sure about Highland, as I'm a little north of there, but we've been seeing bucks chasing does already. Ruts NOT in yet, here in NOVA, but they're starting to dog the does as of a couple days ago. If I had to guess, from now until Nov. 20 is going to be your pre-rut through rut in most of VA.

Thanks for the info! 10 days and counting until I can check it out for myself. Can't wait.

I have been going to Highland county for the early MZL season for 8 years now. That week is the best there is. The deer are usually going nuts and rtunning all over the place. I would make one suggestionto you. GO EARLY AND STAY LATE.

What part of the county are you hunting in?

i've been hunting highland for 25yrs from one end to the other. the deer population in highland has been down in a lot of area's. this is due to doe tags and the lack of a good acorn crop . this year it seems to spotty ,some places you can't find a acorn,but some are loaded. if you hit area that has none,go as high as you can .highland has some high enough peaks that you can get above the frostline .sometimes thats the only place you find food.there are not many farm crops in most of the county so deer will sometimes leave area's to find food. i'm seeing bucks chaseing does now also.if you let me know what part you are hunting in ,i may be able to help more,we have a camp near Headwaters in highland

I'll be hunting Locust Spring area. The population has been down there the last few years. We're hoping for a resurgence.
