The deer rut???

I have a question if the deer are rutting in area 179 does that mean the deer are rutting in area 156? Because I see some deer with large necks showing their rutting in one area and like the one I shot didn't look like he was rutting at all. Some areas have a lot of scrapes and rubs others don't!

Just because they are rutting in one area doesn't mean they are rutting in another

You say they are rutting in the 179 zone but more than likely I bet there is some guys hunting a different area in 179 seeing no signs of rut.

Some years you get a full blown rut and it seems like everywhere is rutting like crazy other years its more of a trickle rut I would say some here some there followed by a bigger push then going back to the some here some there.

2 bucks in our group weren't chasing. I also saw 8 does...none of which had bucks. The guy down the trail got a nice buck chasing a doe. Fact is, the deer are in some phase of rut...always this time of year...regardless. Its up to the buck to decide when to chase and I'm guessing its at night with the hot temps....generically speaking.

Yep, Rut is totally different in all areas of the state. Where we hunt in Aitkin county it always seems rut activity comes in later than in other parts of the state. We've talked wondering if it's somehow in the genetics of the deer in our area or what? On the other hand we also wonder if the bucks in our area travel to other areas during peak rut and then back to our property for a late season rut. Who knows. But we used to see rubs and scrapes in mid October growing up and now it seems rubs and scrapes show up after the hunting season.
So my opinion that doesn't matter what's happening in one zone, the entire state whitetail population doesn't go into rut all at the same time

The main thing that regulates deer breeding is photoperiod (day length), so when the days reach a certain length the deer will be rutting/breeding. Since day length varies little or none at all from one county to another, deer will be rutting at the same time year after year. Deer will be breeding at that specified period, whether we observe "rutting activity" or not.
