In our area the tail end is usually better than peak. The bucks seem to be putting that last bit of effort in trying to find a hot doe and we tend to see a surge in buck activity. Either way we are looking forward to a bice trip and enjoying a different area. Thanks
Deer don’t rut by county. It’s like clockwork pretty much each year. Starting Halloween you’re going to see action starting. Smaller bucks first then bigger ones soon to follow. Warming temperature next week may reduce daytime activity a little. Also, individual rutting reports will vary. One guy says it’s non existent while the next will say it’s on fire. Depends if you’re in the right place at the right time. Good luck. I’m hunting Henderson and Webster counties myself.
