    Mule deer rut usually kicks in to full swing last part of December or early January depending on weather and location.

    I'm feeling the same. Have 12 pts. for deer and was thinking the last couple years to burn them on some other hunt besides 12A, !2B,13A or 13B. Hunted 12B late in 2001, Haven't been able to draw 12B late or 13A since. I will be up on Kiabab in Sept. but not for archery deer. I hunted arhery deer on Kiabab every year at least once or twice from 1987 up until a few yrs. ago when it went to draw. I miss hunting there. It's nice up there in late Aug. and Sept.. Going to stay at Jacob Lake for few days. I want to go back to a place in 12B where I picked up a bunch of shed's and found a pair of whoppers in 2001. Couldn't get there any sooner this year. Hope they aren't too bleached out yet !

    Is this buffalo thing for real? I never heard of anything like that. I should be drawing a 12AW late deer tag this year with one point below max.
