Just signed up for the forum. There's a bunch of great threads on here and I'm hoping to be able to give my two cents when possible. Had a question for you guys....when do you usually see the rut happening in the d13 area? I'm hunting near the sespe. This is my first year hunting d13, I usually hunt a zone around Malibu area and tend to see the rut happening pretty early(late august thru late sept). I didn't get a buck the last two years in a zone and thought I'd get into d13 since it's fairly close. Seems like there's ton of hunters around sespe area and you really have to get far back to even see any does. Last week I was out there a guy shot a small forkie. I'm really curious on when the rut is around there or if it's already over? I know in a zone it's crucial to get out there when the bucks are in rut. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The rut for d13 is starts late in the season first week of november bt is at full rut around thanksgiving
