    Has anyone seen any rutting activity?  I haven't seen it yet but I have heard that people are seeing young bucks following does.

    Friday and Saturday, we watched several younger bucks chasing does and with noses on the ground. Saw several bucks within an hour of dark sparing. I know it's a little early yet, but I think they've got it on there mind,

     We went and checked the cows Mon. evening and on the way home went by a wheat field that we can hunt. There were four bucks on one side in a group and there a couple of does on the other side.. We are a littel slower over here in SW OK... Smiley

    I haven't seen any rut activity at the place I have access to in Canadian Co.  Of course I haven't even seen any bucks this year either.

    Bucks are chasing on our place.  The younger bucks are really acting crazy but big ones are chasing too.

    I had dominate 8pt come about 60 yrds out, just out of range and he wasnt heading my way.  So i grunted at him with my buck roar...then snort wheezed at him.  He turned  180 degrees and came right to me.  He started hooking saplings and walking stiff legged.  He came in around my 35 yrd marker and stopped behind some brush and let out a snort wheeze of his own!!! it was amazing, but after that he just turned and walked away.

    At my ranch on 43 near daisy the bucks are up on their feet checking does . I started finding rubs about  2 weeks ago and have already filled one buck tag and had encounters with 2 other 140-150 class shooters. What's working for me is blind buck growling. They are responding nicely to that. I am thinking next weekend it will be on hard and heavy . It's getting to that magical time out in the woods

    Yea kbart, yall are only probably 5-6 land miles back west of my place. I guess it's this cold weather but I don't remember ever seeing this rutting activity this early in the season up here.

    I hunt pretty close to you guys just north of McGee Creek.  The second weekend of the season I saw deer everywhere.  Hopefully they will be moving this weekend.  We have tons of hogs but no bears...yet.
