Mid week of the second week of the season when the temps were in the 30's-40's, there was some incredible deer movement and bucks were sparing a few nights. I called up a huge doe last weekend when the temps were in the 30's in the morning. She was ready to come in cuz she kept grunting and grunting. Since the warm weather, deer activity, especially buck activity has decreased. If we have a long period of cold weather, it should happen sooner than later, around the first week and a half to second week im guessing

2nd and 3rd weeks of November should be good...full moon is later this year...I believe either 12th or 13th of November... anytime in November is a good time to be in the woods

If I were to go by the amount of drop fawns seen this summer, I would have guessed the rut was pushed back last year from mid November till sometime in early December.

We really saw no hot doe chasing until almost the end of our rifle season and the bucks we did take in mid November, didn't have swollen necks. So you guess is as good as mine...

I always used to take off the second and the third week of November in past years to catch the height of the rut.

Down here it was more noticeable last year than the past couple of year's. Saw bigger buck's chasing around Nov.8th. Missed a giant on either the 9th or 10th. Most of the buck's I have taken over the year's were between the 3rd and the 10th. Regardless of the weather. It seem's when we have a warm spell the buck's do more chasing at night. Last year it was very visible up into the morning and through 1 or 2'oclock. The thing is they have to breed no matter what and in a reasonable time frame. When it's warm I hunt just like I do in early season. But more aggressive on the doe areas. Rut prediction? Not sure. Time I'll be huntin hard First week of nov.

I always see the most movement around Holloween and during the last weekend of archery before gun season starts but thats just me. I think it will kick on about the 5th!

I live in northern IL and I'm going with the week before our shotgun season. I'm hoping the timing is right this year 'cause I'm finally going to get my daughter Erin out. I'd like her to see lots of deer. Of course, any deer that we see will be migrating from WI to points south because we have no deer here in IL.
