Man are the bucks on the move. I think this years rut is gonna be awesome. I have hunted the past few days and have seen a bunch of bucks just none I have wanted to shoot yet. They are really looking for the does. Two nice bucks have been hit on the road right down from the house, what a bummer when they get whacked by a car instead of by a hunter. I did get a nice cape from one of them though. Good Luck to everyone who is hunting.I believe the next week will be amazing.

Hey Tom...just curious...where are you hunting at?
What state are you in ? I'm in South Carolina and the smaller bucks necks are swelled but the larger bucks that I have seen as of a week ago hasen't swollen Go figure!(I've only seen three Big bucks)
This has been the 2nd week of heavy activity here in the lowcountry of the great state of SC. They were heating up about 3 weeks ago, but boy they are hot at it now! Boy called me this morning, he was running a cotton picker and jumped a big 8 pointer, and 5 minutes later spotted a nice 10 pointer with his nose glued to the ground! You go boys!
Iam from NW ohio on the Indiana, Michigan borders. I hunted tonight and seen a nice 21/2 year old buck he was looking for some company. It was cold,windy and rainy not a real pleasant day to hunt.
My penned bucks just stopped eating this week, and began pacing as well as some chasing and herding. I say another couple weeks till breeding. Im in NY state.
I shot a really nice muley above timber line at yesterday 9000 ft. here in Wyoming. I had to pack it out on my back in two trips and I was loving every minute of it. My buck was alone and did not have a swelled neck yet but I have had several nice muley bucks come into the shop with really big necks this past week. So its just started here. The season closes the 15th.
It finally came together this morning! I shot a nice 13 point. He was chasing a doe and gave me a 10 yard shot. He field dressed 195 lbs. I estimate his age at 31/2 I haven't checked yet to be sure. I killed him at 9:00 this morning. His neck is huge. He was grunting up a storm when he ran her by me.
