Rut 2020

What are you guys (and any gals?) seeing for signs of the Rut? Think it may push off later this year with all the warm weather? Will that have any affect?

One doe has not been with its young one but not sure if a neighboring hunter took her already. I swear I saw it on the trail camera last weekend by itself at night. The one doe I had at the stand and could not get a shot was still with its fawn. Not seeing any transient bucks on camera at night yet.

I think it usually hits strong between Halloween and Thanksgiving correct?

There's a fairly large herd of deer on my property nearly every day. Don't see that many bucks though...they usually stay in the woods rather than the yard.

In baltimore county I'm used to seeing it starting right around Halloween-ish. Of course they are not on a timer but generally speaking.... in my area it should be starting off shortly. Sadly I havent had the chance to get into the woods yet, so I'm basing this on previous years experience.

Rutting moon is Halloween night. Does will start coming into estrus between the second and third week of Nov. As for the bucks(the real ones), they always start cruising the same time every year, end of October.

I drive up I 83 towards PA every weekend ---I know for sure when the rut has started by the number of dead deer on side of road-not seeing that much roadkill yet--give it till Halloween

Been hunting Carrol/Frederick county 1-2 times a week and checking cameras. The few bucks I've seen are just browsing. Started to notice some fresh scrapes in the last week or so.
