the prerut should be starting very soon. depending on where you hunt this behavior may be easier or harder to observe. i hunt in the hills of the southeast near manchester and the deer pop is not that good so it is sometimes hard to determine what phase of the rut the deer are actually in. from my experience, between early muzzleloading and rifle season is the second best time to see bucks chasing does. my favorite time is late muzzleloading because it is always cold and as you know, the weather for november is sometimes hard to pattern in ky.
I hunt a half hour north of Georgetown,Kentucky.
For the last 10-years I have the rut in full swing by November 9th,if we don't have any hot weather!
With the way the weather is,we may see evidence of the pre-rut this week end. Make sure you take your rattling rack and use it!
Let us know what you see and shoot ... Good Luck and Practice Safety!
the per rut is now take a rattle
