Whitetail Bow Hunters.  Is a the rut winding down or what. I never saw a real active rut here in Central Ohio.  What's the take with you all. More rut to come or what?  Thanks! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Didn't see as much chasing as I often do, but had some going on.  Things are kind of quiet at the moment, I suspect wave 2 to start picking up in about a week.

Northeast Indiana, from what I seen, the rut was on two weeks ago. Every doe I seen had a buck or two in tow.

This past Sunday it was on fire again. Bucks running all over after the does. It's been very short lived, but it was on fire and now I'm already seeing does alone.

Didn't see it while in Arkansas the week before Thanksgiving and in Oklahoma the week of Thanksgiving!  Last year it started a couple of weeks before I ate my first slice of turkey!
Hopefully this last weekend of rifle we'll see those bucks with their noses to the ground! %^$^

South western Indiana rut is about all done. I have seen 4 does running together quite a bit. May be a straggler left !

I have only seen one buck moving in the same direction as some does.  A little while later, he appeared again, and went back to where he had come from.  After, that, I have been seeing groups of 2, 3 or even 4 does.  No bucks at all.  Any deer that I saw were too far away for a shot.  Really hoping that changes during Muzzleloader season.

Still not seeing bucks rutting here in Oklahoma!  It's been a strange winter.  The temperatures have been in the mid 60's to low 70's!!!        >:(
