    Rut is begining

    Just saw 3 bucks in my pasture sparring back and forth. one 3x4 and 2 forkies. Necks all swelled up and looking very sleek and fit. Usually starts around Thanksgiving, weather cold and rainy for the last 3 days. Expect to see some bigger boys too. I'll try and get a few pictures.

    They were rutting full bore last week in SD for my hunt. We actually saw some smaller bucks that had eyes gouged out and oozing. That is the first time I had ever seen that. It's always fun to watch them lip curl and push does around. Better entertainment than what is on most tv channels that's for sure!
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Down here in SW Colorado that all we have. I've been here 13 years and you can almost bet that the rut will be around Thanksgiving.

    Nope. But I'll probably be hunting 81 next year for M/L elk.
