Is the rut over in Kentucky?

I bow hunted a week before gun season and seen bucks chasing. Its the first week of gun season here in Ky and all I have seen since it started is packs of does with no bucks following. Is the rut over?


Last week was likely when most does were receptive.  Bucks didn’t have to move far to find a receptive doe.  Now that a majority of does have been bred bucks are back to searching for receptive does!  During the past two days many hunters are reporting seeing mature bucks!  Now’s a great time to be hunting!

Enjoy creation,
