I anticipate the peak rut every year to run November 15th to around November 25th or so in our area. I haven't been out for the gun season as I only have the one tag this year, and I usually like to keep it for the peak rut and bowhunting (as I hunt alone during the week). So Monday morning I'll be out looking for those bucks that all my buddies have been telling me were nocturnal (that they caught on their trailcams) for the past couple weeks.
The weather's looking good in the long range forecast for the next week.
Good luck Muff!
I figure that every day you wake up breathin', is a good indicator that it's gon'na be a good day!
