We have seen no evidence of the forthcoming rut in does or fawns. No single does nervously running about, no fawns looking for momma and no abandonment of food plots and staging areas by does and fawns. Things are still orderly and peaceful in their world. We have always believed that doe behavior is key to tracking the rut. It is one of the strongest rut markers discussed in our new book and in the Outdoor Life feature, "Rethinking The Rut." Buck behavior can be all over the place, but if you want to know where you are in the rut's progression, watch the does.
