Early Rut?
« on: October 18, 2015, 03:10:40 AM »
Was checking some local forums to get an idea of the condition of our deer herd right now (too pregnant to go scouting in the woods this year). Modern firearm opened this weekend for us.

Seems to be an awful lot of rutting activity in western Washington. Normally it's kicking in at the end of October early November.

Anyone else seeing early rut signs? Or are our blacktail just messing with us again?  ##$%#1114

Now that we had a killing frost patterns are changing. Things starting to get serious. Many new big rubs and scrapes. The rattling is more serious too. No more tippy tap, it's progressed to all out war. Talked to yari this morning we think the rut by us will get rolling in full in about a week or two.
