Default Pre Rut?

What time is considered the pre rut?
I know the rut starts here around the end of Oct or beginning of November.
The reason I ask is because I have never tried rattling or scents and would like to when appropriate.
I hunt some woods that have a very large buck in them but very little pressure from other hunters.
Any advice would be appreciated.

So do ya'll think it would be too much to put out some dominant buck scent around my stand and do some rattling tomorrow?
I'm in a tree btw...
