RUT PREDICTION 2016?

Just sitting in the backyard in my tree
When began I to wonder when the rut will be
So I sez to myself;  Self, let's see
What the predictions of others might be?
I'm going with the first full week in November
Shall we wait and see?
 
 
OK... OK so I am no Shakespeare, that's quite clear .......  It's just that it gets quite lonely, sitting way back here.    Sorry!!
 
 
 
So what is your take on the whitetail rut in W. PA this season?

    I'm saying it's gonna be the same time it always is. From around the 28 of October we well see the seeking phase begin when little bucks start chasing does and all the newbs saying it's in full swing! Then around the 3-4 of November it will actually start imo I don't think the big boys ever look far for hot does they know where the honeys hang out the rutting moon is late this year the 22 of November I believe ddh says I really wish we could hunt an extra week in November

    I'd rather be lucky then good,but im to good to be lucky

    2 years ago it hit hard in ohio where I hunt the 1st week of november. Last year it was the 2nd week. Usually the 3rd week we start seeing the traveling big boys hopefully one comes close enough to whack this year! I have the first week of November off so I'm going with that!

    Well I'll say its on right now.
    Actually it started Approx. 6 weeks ago and will end in about 12 more weeks.

    I've been killing my Pa.bucks mostly the last week of are season for the last 5 or 6 season. In Ohio the 14th through the 24th has been good. I always feel.big mature bucks rut longer and harder than the little guys. I seldom hunt till Halloween on unless I've got a good early bachelor group showing up on a regular basis. The monster buck my son got last Monday was traveling solo and hit a scape seconds before dying. Seconds before a little 5 pts was messing with a doe but not really chasing. That big buck neck is all torn up and gorged. Makes me wonder what buck would challenge a buck with a 23.5 inch spread.lol

      If a doe goes in heat they will chase. I have seen chasses happening real early, with good bucks too. The grand faunally is likely as others say early November I guess.
