NE whitetail rut
« on: November 09, 2019, 10:03:12 AM »
Happy Sat.   Leaving Friday to hunt the last 4 days up near Colville.  I was not there last year because I was helping my partner fill his quality pogue tag.   Was wondering if anyone is seeing any good pre rut activity?

Their article gives a good (generic) basic description, but by no means are those dates hard and fast for everywhere in the whitetails range, especially in ne wa.

One thing for sure, hunt when you can and dont worry about anything but staying focused.

A buddy over there sent me pictures of fresh rubs and a scrape from the other day.

Right now they are in the chasing phase. I see more bucks with the does now, the bucks are feeding and following and chasing. I saw 3 different bucks at it last night doing this. The does are coming out waiting and then a buck shows up and then they play hard to get. This is a great time to be out because any day now they will be locked up.

Pre rut is on for sure. We killed two bucks this weekend and both were stinky and one neck swollen. Lots of scrapes around but not much chasing yet. Should get better each day

And about 90% of what people are seeing are 1-3 yr old bucks chasing . Itís the 4.5 and older that show around nov 18 and more specifically nov 20-24 is the best time in most areas.

I shot a buck on the Saturday at 10:00am, as it was sparring with another buck with two does nearby. It was only a 2 year old deer though. As huntnnw said, the big ones aren't moving too much yet.

There wasn't rifle rut permits at least in 121 until they went to the point system. Late buck used to open thanksgiving day the last season for that was 1984 after that they have been closing it between the 19 and the 22nd.

Late archery was nov 20 opener for a long time . Then they took it away for 5 measly rifle permits. Those 5 days were the archery season it was the bread and butter . One of the reasons I quit bowhunting Whitetails . Archery guys get maybe 2 days of dwindling rut activity now.
