Overall Activity Status: Last week we reported that things were fixing to bust wide open, and it looks like they have in certain areas. Movement, including rut activity, is full bore in most of Arkansas, Georgia, and South Carolina , and in some portions of other states. Many hunters are seeing good bucks and scoring. In many cases, even the older mature bucks are in rut mode. One indicator of the actual rut is when the older bucks start chasing because the mature ones typically don't waste their energy and expose themselves unless it's for real.
