The pre rut will be starting next weak on Mondey. It will start out buy the bucks just looking for the smells of the does in estroes. It will continue all next weak with pre rut but by the following weak it will realy start too go full action rut.
If I was you and if I could i wood be in the woods next mondey but the weak after you will see the actual mating start. You will sea some bucks in your area that will come for miles to look to mate with the does. You want to be out as much as you can, just don't think you can bee their in the morning because the bucks will be looking for the does all day.
I seen bucks with there noses up in the air lip curling on my farm. It's going to happen starting mondey.
Be their or be square.
Your wlecome and good luck.
