The rut is a magical time of the year. It’s when mature bucks are at their most vulnerable time. And as hunters, it’s generally our favorite time of year to sit high in a tree.
But the rut is a mystery. There are so many variables. And it’s hard to stay up to date on what’s happening with the rut, especially for working men and women who don’t have the spare time to spend every day in the deer woods.
That’s why Realtree.com has overhauled its Rut Report page. While we still welcome your personal rut reports from the field as we always have, we’ve now assembled a team of deer hunters to supplement this resource and help keep track of the rut for you.

As you click through the interactive map, you’ll find the country will be separated into five different regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Northwest and Southwest. And within each region, you’ll be greeted by a hard-core deer hunter just like you as they bring bi-weekly reports on what’s happening with the rut near you. We’ll be hearing from expert sources — pro staffers, outfitters, guides, biologists, and more — throughout the country, too.
So stay tuned, we’ll soon be taking the Realtree.com Rut Report page live for you to enjoy and benefit from.
The big show is what we live for as deer hunters. And we’re counting down the days until its arrival.
