Headed to north central KS this week to try to find a buck for Christmas dinner. Anything still chasing the ladies, or are they on their feed to bed patterns? Thanks for any up to date info!

I don’t know what’s going on in Kansas. However this past weekend in SD I seen 7 good bucks while coyote hunting. 4 of them were on the bed to feed routine.

I did come across 3 bucks chasing around 2 does. One was a really big deer. If I had to guess 21” spread and long tined.

Haven't seen any signs of rut action recently in south east Illinois.

Awesome love to hear reports of deer on their feet in daylight! We hunted the first week of November and it was tough, hope to have a little better action this time!

Can't speak for Kansas but have seen late rut activity in MT before. Any does that didn't get bred will go into second estrus and some of the fawns/younger does will go into heat late too. That can kick some bucks into gear again if you get a hot doe around. I watched a 140" deer try to breed a fawn last year just before christmas near my house. She was definitely in heat as I had not seen that deer before and was keeping a close eye out. It can happen! Good luck and let us know how you do.

I've been kicking around the idea of a semi live hunt, either way I'll let you know what we see and hopefully put a hole in!

A friend sent me videos a few days ago of two nice bucks chasing on one of his job sites, northern ky on the Ohio river.

Saw 4 bucks chasing does last weekend in south Missouri. One was a shooter. Found a new rub line about 100 yards above one of my tree stands in the same area that wasn't there 3-4 weeks ago during rifle season...

As always,it varies from area to area. Can be red hot oneplace, go two miles down the road and it is dead.

Haven't seen any chasing, saw some fresh rubs, see groups of does and yearly at last light in fields, hope it will change.
