Well, it has turned cold here in Kentucky and the whitetail deer rut report has been the same from most of my friends in different states. The bucks are moving good and chasing does hard the past couple of weeks. I’ve seen some really nice bucks being taken from several different states.
Whitetail Deer Rut Report
I have heard of several nice bucks being killed in Kentucky the past two weeks and all of them were chasing or following does. One of my friends got up late and headed to his stand around 8 am and encountered 3 bucks chasing does while heading to his stand. He was able to make a good shot on the third buck which ended up scoring 166″. The same day his hunting buddy killed a nice 10 pointer chasing a doe on the same lease. Another friend of mine killed a very nice big 12 pointer in Kentucky and he was chasing a doe as well.
I got a deer hunting update from Kansas, Missouri, Georgia and Illinois and the weather is cold and the big bucks are chasing does. A friend of mine in Georgia sent me some pictures of a 150″ buck he is after but he hasn’t gotten him yet. Although he is getting daylight trail camera pictures of him. I just love this time of year seeing all the big bucks taken and hearing all the stories about how they got them.

We would love to hear how your season is going where you hunt. Hopefully everyone is having a fun safe deer season and either getting some meat or killing that trophy buck of a lifetime or just enjoying time spent in the great outdoors with family and friends.
