My boys live nearby, their friends have told them to get out in the woods last couple of days,  that it is on.  You should still be good.  My youngest has got his buck 3 years in a row on the 23rd.   Good luck!

The rut was canceled according to a few buddies who were up there this weekend :chuckle:. Heard the same thing down here in 8 and 8A from another buddy :chuckle:.
Idaho sucks. I'm moving to Oregon.

I hunted with my dad last weekend in N Central ID - saw 13 bucks in 1.5 days and tons of rutting activity...on private land though.

A week later? The peak rut you can always bank on is  nov 19-25th every year. I live straight west of st Marieís on the Idaho line. Older bucks in last 2 days have been out and about in daylight looking for does and chasing

From what Iíve gathered the rut timing is all determined by the amount of daylight entering a mature does pupils, therefore, the rut timing at a particular latitude should occur during the same time frame every year.  Sound correct?  I know Iíve always had great action from Nov 25-30. Good luck out there!

I rattled in a mature buck this last Saturday, which a buddy of mine shot (my friend was 300 yards away on a parallel ridge, and intercepted not one but two bucks coming in to the rattle). It should be even better this weekend.

I have been up in north idaho last few days...hunted muleys until I couldnt get in to my spot. Yesterday, there were whitetails with their noses to the ground everywhere. Shot a buck yesterday evening. The rut is booming

Going to head out for a few hours in the morning and Friday before spending time with family this next week. If I don't get anything, I'll bust out the smoke pole and whack a doe in December. It sucks to live over here and deer hunt for almost 3.5 months. :chuckle:
