Q:
I live in Massachusetts where your Deer rut status has us in the Yellow as if the rut hasn't even started in New England yet. But all the Northeast reports act like there is heavy activity throughout the entire Northeast. Please report on why New England seems to be so far behind rut schedule this year. Thanks.

I live in NH, and it seemed like a relatively normal year to me. Then again, I don't follow all this fancy rut stuff. To me, when rifle season starts it's time to sit in the stand all day as many days as possible. I know there will be bucks in pursuit of does by mid November, and a lot of moving also due to hunting activity. I keep it simple and try to record as much information as possible about a particular area by September, that way this doesn't matter too much to me.

From my understanding, the rut report depends on the number of people who report what they are observing in the field. It could be that there just are not very many people in those areas reporting their observations. The primary rut should pretty much be over in northern locations.
