rutting still going on

after we did some drives yesterday, i gotta say it looked like the rut was still on full bore. there were fresh rubs all over the woods and the bark was still laying on the leaves. the buck i shot had a huge swollen neck still too. this pic isnt the greatest but you can kinda see how wide his neck was. shoulda took a better pic.

Yesterday, we witnessed two small bucks sparring, lots of fresh rubs, and some chasing, got a basket racked 7 while he was trailing a doe

On Friday morning my friend Russel had two 4 points and one 6 point all fighting in his back yard here in central PA, near Lock Haven. I've seen a few bucks that seem to be still pursuing the females.. nice deer by the way.

Re: rutting still going on

Yes, there is still some chasing/ rutting going on. 6 doe and 2 bucks on there tails comming out of the woods into the field, when the 6 point started running them around and the smaller 4 point started go for the little ones.
Nice buck JR.
I guess depending where your located it's still on.

As long as there are some doe in "estrous" in an area buck will stay in the rut.

Re: rutting still going on

i wish i woulda had my camera out during gun season to see when the bucks were cruising and where they were coming from. obviously they cruised at night since we didnt see them during the day, but i would like to know how close to daylight it happened. they were through our woods everynight. and i swear the woods looks like late october right now.

Re: rutting still going on

On Tuesday of the first week I was sitting there and in the thicket behind me I could hear grunting then here comes this doe out with a 3 pt right on her tail then about an hr later a really big I mean huge 16-17" wide 4 pt came out right on the same trail with nose to the ground grunting with every other step. And the last 3 days of this week with the snow I found some rubs with the shredded bark still on top of the snow. That was all in 2e
