    I was just curious what if any rut activity everyone has been seeing this week. The opening week of rifle season was pretty insane for me. I was seeing anywhere from 20-50 deer per day just never the right one I was looking for. Last weekend was pretty decent as far as sightings but most deer I saw were feeding and not showing nearly as much interest in breeding. I hunt in Grayson and Bullitt counties.

    I hunt green co. Opening weekend till Thursday of the following week was the best rut I have seen in 20 or so years of hunting. Friday it seemed like it shut off like a water faucet. Mainly seeing does on their feet.

    It is called the full moon. Lot of nighttime activity

    Yea every night this week it's been bright as hell as night which sucks. I plan on going tomorrow all day, opening week I saw plenty of does but no bucks which was odd, maybe I'll get lucky tomorrow.

    Went sunday and saw 13 deer, 5 bucks, 3 shooters out of bow range. Bucks were chasing pretty good. Plan to go again either friday or saturday morning.

    I agree that's its the full moon. I hunted Sunday morning and saw one doe right at daybreak. Hunted that afternoon and saw eleven does/fawns but no bucks.
