How is rut progressing with the warmer weather? Seeing lots of buck movement in s iowa.

I have seen only small bucks. The weather is unseasonably warm. Looking forward to the weather changing later this week and then rut should be strong.

Slow so far NW of DSM.

I haven't been seeing much movement up here as far as seeking/chasing. I've seen some big deer shot around the county though so they must be doing some moving. I also foresee the rain and weather change to spark things off. Typically had good luck after a rain when the bucks come to freshen up rubs and scrapes.

A friend of mine cell phone has been going off since the cold front came through, he is a taxidermist and is starting to turn away heads, surprising the number of calls on walleyes also which he turn down, going into retirement with a select clients to do the work.
