    Any Whitetail hunters out there?

    Since I live in Nebraska, I spend a great deal of my fall chasing whitetails in addition to my short trips further West to chase elk, antelope, or mule deer. Just wondering how many others out there are getting excited for the whitetail rut in the next few weeks. Although there is nothing like strapping on a pack and getting out in the wilderness for a week straight, it's great to be able to go out after work for a few hours and have a chance at shooting a big buck.

    Heck yeah! Was out this morning, but didn't see anything. The young bucks are starting to cruise a little, with a little chasing and grunting, but the mature bucks haven't been very active during daylight. Starting next weekend, I'll be out in the woods every minute I can. Good luck to all.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    I have been chasing white tails sice I started hunting. They finally started moving in central and western Ks since the weather is cooling off. Cant wait for the rut to start. I couldnt take it any longer so I smoked a doe last week.

    I'm getting pumped for the rut in SE KS. Went out last Fri. morning and jumped a few does. I'm not seeing much action from the bucks just yet, but the next few weeks should be good. It seems like someone always shoots a good deer around here on Halloween night.

    I filled my doe tag during muzzleloader in Sept. and now I can just focus on a good buck. Got a great new spot picked out that's a super travel corridor they should be cruising looking for does.

    I've often wondered how much more success I would have if I devoted a solid week to nothing but hunting like I do out west. Anyway, there aren't many things as wonderful as crisp mornings on the stand when bucks are out looking for does. It just feels like home!

    I hunt in the sandhills of NE, you never know what you're going to find. Mule deer and whitetail almost run together here. It's great! Although I think the whitetail population needs thinning out. That's why I got several doe tags and whitetail are on the hit list.

    Love me some whitetail. Got my buck last year on the evening of Halloween.

    I can't wait to see what pops out of the russian olives this year!

    I'll be headed out here soon. I'm after a wallhanger or nothing as usual. My son turns 12 November 20th. I'm more excited for him to go out and find his first buck to trip his trigger. I remember my first buck like it was yesterday. I was so jacked up i emptied my gun on him..lol. Luckily he must of been one of those "special" deer and stood there while i loaded one more bullet.

    my uncle has a big chunk of woods in west virgina and i love to chase white tails there. i plan all year to be there for the first week in nov. every year. but because of other hunts i have not made it back in the last 2 years. that all changes this year!!!!!! nov. 6th will find me bow in hand,20 feet up a cherry tree in a spot we call "the pallet" with the worlds biggest smile on my face. the rut really starts getting hot about the 3rd or 4th. so it should be perfect.

    Got blinds out Saturday so the deer can get used to them before the rifle season. Been glassing some hot spots from a distance too, but no shooters moving yet in the daylight.
