Saw a few chasing does this morning in 121, but hard to find a place to park on state or open land. Way more hunters than usual,suspect the weekend will be a zoo. Still not what I'd call full rut activity.

 :bash: torn between trying a very busy spot where I know there were doe in the early season or a little more seclusion but not nearly as much doe activity....

Personally, I'd choose quality over quantity.

I have noticed some tree scraps as well ,has the rut started ,yes,is it full on ,I don't know.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

This guy was chasing a doe, grunting and running around crazy on the 7 th. 121
If a man does his best, what else is there?
