I seen 30 deer in about an hour last Saturday out turkey hunting..
12 bucks & the rest were doe's all were walking the game trail & no sign of rutting yet.
If the weather stays cool, it will be a good harvest come opening day.
I have several buddies that have been working north and west of enid for the last 3 weeks. The middle of last week they were seeing deer chasing all over and saw some actually stand and breed in the open in daylight. I bet it is going on here this week.
I was out at the land I am taking the kids hunting on and we saw lots of rubs and plenty of deer running around. So I'd say it's starting and likely happening this week..To bad I can't take em out there this weekend but hey it's land I can rifle hunt on so I won't complain..
I will be hunting in far northwest oklahoma this weekend, so sounds like from what Farmboy and masonbanta ara saying the rut is on. Thats good. Or is it bad and they might be in "lock down" with the doe's this weekend? ???
