Lets have a contest for all of the east-side fella's on when do u think the rut is going to kick in? Myself included...........i say the rut is going to kick off the 3rd week of october, even maybe the second. Who is in, and what is your estimate?

Peak chasing around hear will be the end of the first week into the second week in November. Peak RUT will be about 11/15(give or take a few days) like it is every year.

Oh, the weather doesn't effect when the rut occurs. Weather will always affect deer activity, bucks will run all hours of the day and night when chasing....it gets even better when it's cold and they're chasing.
