    Is the rut in South Arkansas over ?

    Is the first phase of the South Arkansas rut over ? Any guesses as to when the second phase of the rut should start ?

    Not in South Arkansas

    All the scrapes I"ve seen on our lease in Union County are full of leaves and haven't been touched in a while.

    I agree Manybeards! The rut is coming in late this year and it's probably just now peaking. Most of the early activity was chasing out of habit. I think the lull is about to start when they shack up and disappear for a week or two.

    I'm hunting in Arkansas county and the rut is just now starting. Oh there was some small bucks chasing lately but the big daddy's are just fixing to move in and run those little bucks off.

    Saw a nice 8 with his nose to the ground about 10 mins behind a doe this morning. Would have been nice if he would have slowed down enough to present me with a shot.

    I would say they are just coming in pretty good. My daughter and I each shot a deer yesterday afternoon (8 point and doe). I hit the can 5 times and they came running in! He definitely had some stink on him. That was in Saline County, but there shouldn't be much difference.

    The way it's looking from this thread we may still get some rutting action.
