It's wide open!

This morning I get in one of my stands up near the TN state line. About 730 I hear the unmistakable sound of a deer grunting. And saw a doe running, just behind her there was a small 8pt. And then this one stepped out. They were running her so hard they all had their mouths open. They ran around in my plot in and out of the pines and finally got to where I could get a shot. The 6.5 Grendel made short work of him and he only ran 25yds. As I was walking up to him the other buck and doe were still running around. They didn't pay me any attention as I walked to check on my buck. ImageImage

Several bucks have been on this tailgate over the years!

The Rut is over here for the most part but I did see a spike chase a young doe all over the place the day I killed the drop tine deer. Second heat I suppose? It's usually done here by mid November.

Its crazy in my area. 5mi north near the stateline they seem to rut early Dec, around my house they go late Dec, and 10mi to the east in tishomingo county it seems to be early Jan. Luckily I have places to hunt all 3!
