It is now Sept 24th and I have seen some really odd deer behavior. I saw 2 bucks today, still in velvet ( I'm in the north east).I have actually only seen 1 buck this year that was not in velvet and that was yesterday.
On mytrail cam pictures, I have several photos of Bucks and does together since August. I also noted that several of the does rear tarsals are already dark with one photo where they almost look black. I don't recall ever seeing deer with Tarsals that dark this early. And our season does not open for almost another month. I think we are in for an early rut this year.

not really sure but within the last month my trailcam has taken several pics of bucks and does together. that is odd for our area at this time. i cant really verify the tarsal gland issue though. i guess i will have to look back at my pics and see

I live in the south east,(Fl.).I was wandering where to look at to find the rut forecast. Any type of web-sites that might have that info?
