Just noticing some of the bucks showing some interest in rut activity. A few sparring on camera and a couple bucks I’ve seen were checking does and following every move they made. Not necessarily chasing but staying with that doe waiting for the right time.

Not seeing any real activity here yet, but it's early for this area. I did see the first scrape the last few days.

We were at GP Cossar State Park at Enid the weekend after Thanksgiving and the bucks were still in the herd. They did a little sparing. We had 3 young 8 points hanging around with 23 doe.

From the sounds of it the warm weather hasn't hindered the need to procreate.

Hard to hunt in warm temps. Just started noticing a few scrapes/rubs this weekend and saw a few on their feet. Guess I need to pack the thermacell and get on the stand
