I had to drive from Paducah to Evansville early this morning, as I do frequently. Left at 5:30. I was rubbernecking the fields the whole way and never saw the first live deer and all the road kills were does except 1 little spike. Usually when the rut is in high gear, I see numerous deer out in the fields and several freshly demised bucks along the sides of the interstate. Between that and what I'm seeing on the farm I hunt, the rut still hasn't busted into crazy mode yet. Last year I remember my fields turning into an absolute deer circus during the latter part of the first week of gun season. We'll see!
