Nov. 1--Overall Activity Status: It's that time of year when dynamics start to change. As October changes to November, it's prime time to catch a buck on the move. Bucks will start thinking more about does and less about food. In my area, the Texas Panhandle, I've seen few signs of the rut. Bucks are still thinking with their stomachs. I'm still trying to nail a pretty 150-inch 10-point, but so far he's been sneaky. He's still predictable and visible, going to food, but I think his habits will change in the upcoming two weeks. When he starts to worry about girls more, he may wander. Then it gets much harder to find him, and kill him, with a bow. I'm going to try to get him soon while he's still on a pattern.
