Rut , some years, is just barely rolling by the end of season, the 19th.  Ridgerunner is correct. Season used to go the the 22nd. It's not a mystery why it came back to the 19th.

They rolled the season back so they had a spot to drop in the 5 permit tags..........the only reason.  A bit of pre activity right now, and Ive seen actual breeding as late as 12-3....last year.

If I had to choose first part or last part of the season, it would be the last.......but Ive seen it red hot day one as well.  Dont miss any of it unless you have to.

Ridgerunner and BuckFvr are correct.  The state does not want any seasons open during the peak. Hence the usual gap between late modern and late muzzy in the 113.  Success would triple IMO.

Further.... The multi-season tagholders can usually catch some of the peak.  Hunt the last couple days of modern, then the first couple days of muzzy.  I've got a solid 45 years hunting NE corner; that's what I've come away with.  Good luck!

It's just starting. I saw a buck following a doe last night. He was feeding and keeping an eye on her, when she moved he would to.

I went out last Sunday and it was pretty quiet. I am going to wait until Sunday and Monday (have family obligations tomorrow), so I just need to hang on until then! Hopefully bucks will be cruising.

Heading out this evening for a couple days for what my dad and I are caling "operation fill the freezer". Weather is a little warmer and dryer than I had hoped but we will see how it goes. Will report back upon our return

I've seen some new bucks since the weekend on a couple properties I hunt here on the Palouse. So it appears, they are wandering a little more. I've only been out glassing two evenings but I haven't seen any bucks with does. I'll be pulling my cams on the 22nd and hope to see some more decent bucks, I've got a friend and his 10 year old coming for the Boy's first hunt on the 29th for late muzzy.

The private land I usually hunt was not as productive during Modern General as I had hoped but I lucked out and killed a pretty decent 4x4 on some FFTH ground. Hopefully I can get the little man on a legal deer of any sort.

 Wreckerman, you're in Pullman, I see! We should compare notes. I am hunting my Idaho WT tag until late muzzy opens in WA. Good luck to you! Good job mentoring the next generation.
