Several bucks looking for does Sat afternoon & small bucks actually running does Sun AM. Nothing Sun afternoon during the windstorm but did see a nice 130 class on the road on the way to our club during the high winds.

Bottomline: Bucks are ready - does arent. Rut MAY come early for Meriwether this year.

Saturday the small bucks were looking pretty hard, the doe's were in a trot so I figured big boy was behind them but nothing. I'm not far from Keith road. I think this weekend will be good and ill be on vacation from the 4th- 15th! Oh by the way I have found several rubs on trees but no scrapes anywhere?? What are y'all seeing?

SW of Greenville here... last weekend, saw about 10 scrapes.. This weekend, I lost count.. That and the rubs were very very numerous. I thought I heard some grunting in the thick but couldn't tell for sure.

PRE rut is darned sure on right now.

It is weird around cedar rock. Friday night I seen a 9 pointer with a spike! Saturday morning had a 3.5 year old 8 pointer watch a doe cross the cut over and followed her every step. No grunting just walking and watching. She got tired of him and ran off and he liked to have tore up the cut to catch her.

We had 3 good bucks killed this weekend and atleast 3 more good ones seen with no shot. All bucks were cruising, checking scrapes. Big bucks were definitely on their feet although the does aren't ready yet. It should be wide open any day now. This was in Ogletree/Stovall Rd area.

I've seen lots of scrapes but no rubs. Club member filmed a nice 8 pointer coming in and freshening a scrape the friday evening before gun opener. I had a mature buck run in to some rattling Saturday morning but couldn't get a shot.

I watched a nice 2.5 year old 8 pointer each out of the food plot Monday evening by himself. Then I had 5 does come into the plot, but didn't notice any ruting behavior. I'm in Stewart County. Monday morning i shot two hogs on the way back to camp. Sausage is on its way! Got them both with one shot.
