Default Rut Explosion

I was seeing a lot of bucks just coming through at night on my cams up until Saturday. Sunday through yesterday evening there was no bucks on cam and only does in the field. Today about 2pm the woods lit up and a wall hanger chased a doe right out of the woods through the middle of the field full speed. I seen 5 other does today and 4 of them had bucks running them all around as fast as they could run. Does would get away and then stop and pee everywhere they could. All the bucks where grunting there heads off. 100 percent different from yesterday so I would guess this is day 1 of the chase here. Very exiting day to be out there!

Yup... it would seem that your primary breeding phase is kicking in... See- Photoperiodism...

Can't wait for Saturday morning
