rut activities yet ?

The deer are rutting in Morgan County and starting to chase in Fayette County, your on the other side of the state from Fayette though and southeast of Morgan so I don't know what to tell you. It seems like every 20 miles is different in Alabama.  It's good to take the lady out on stand with you. I took mine earlier this year and she got the nickname rain dancer because she moved around so much it looked like she was doing a rain dance in the stand --099-780 It was priceless memories!

Seeing a few fresh Rub's near area's I hunt (But I haven't scouted for any)
Had one on a tree that was less then 12 hours old Monday (Fresh tracks with dirt kicked up) and peeled bark had yet to darken)...
Deer moved around 9 AM yesterday but no shooters and didn't move till after dark...
