Rut Predictions


Recommended Posts

Just curious what everyone thinks about when the rut will kick off this year for prime time! The full moon on the 14th makes me think the intense action won't be until late in November. I usually take off a week in November but sometimes it is hard to plan a month in advanced without knowing the weather. The first two weeks of November is when I take off typically but the last couple of ruts have been terrible however I still managed to tag out. Either way I start hunting hard once permit starts but just thought I would ask for other people's opinions on this. It has been about 6 years since I saw a good drunken rut.

 

I hope there is no 70 degree days again this time! I'll never forget last years "best day of the rut" with every dick and harry in the woods and not a single deer lol.

it's so regional even within NJ, that it hards to say. I do think it will be pretty much the same as it is every year. The best time to be on stand (IMHO) is 10/20 through 11/20 (to fully capture all stages of the rut), and the weather will dictate your best days.

Nothing spooks deer more than my stank…

I'm just starting to see little rubs but no scrapes yet. I'm thinking the first week of November they will be chasing ( only cause I took off that week lol ) buddy shot an older buck on our property last night. He came out the hedge row and was on a mission cutting the corner of the field. Then he let him have him. Big bodies deer.

It will happen for the most part in November some will see action 3 days ago and other as late as Groundhog Day.

Some will have one of the TIMES OF THEIR LIFE while other will piss and moan about it never having happened.

Some how most of the does living into next year will be pregnant, perhaps immaculately .

Phrases like "Locked down" and "Trickle rut" etc. will be thrown around by those who fail to kill or even see their "Target buck" during league shooting hours while others will hord their days off from work and wife till the whole thing is over and they wonder what the hell happened.

THATS MY PREDICTION
