well I have hunted twice and the bucks are definetly getting worked up. I watched a year and a half old six pointer chase a do all over a corn field for the last 30 min of light. She was not really responding to him but not running him off either. I put a camera up on a scrape and got pictures of bucks and does using it. I have 5 different bucks coming to it as wll as several groups of does. the does are just passing by though not really anything else. It is deffinetly close. I expect the chasing to start here in the next week. Prob not heavy chasing but a few does coming into estrus and full blown rut within two weeks based on what I have seen.
