The rut has started getting hot and heavy here lately. The bucks are running does every night. Bucks are even mounting them and season doesn't start for 2 more days!!!! Iknow exactly where you are coming from. Last year at this time, I was out bowhunting for almost 2 months already. I feel way behind.

My problem is a little different. The rut is pretty much in full gear here, the only problem is temps are well above average and they don't seem to want to move. a little frustrating.

I have the same problem, I get off work at 2:30 PM but my wife is rarely able to leave before 4:45 and we have a 40 minute commute home. This pretty much leaves me weekends and vacation days.

it takes me 30min to get to work and i have to be here at 9. i think i might go in the mornings and sit untill about 8:15 but i never see anything in the mornings because i hunt around alot of fields and the deer always see/hear me going in. its the only place i have lockons at.
