I was out skouting this murning before lite. i sat in my stand elevation 18foot. The yunger bucks are getting ansy and seen 4 of them sniffing ata older doe who was in heat. this is a pre rut heat and she wanted nothing two due with this young bucks. I will be back out tomorrow to see if they are smelling her again. I can tell you that the pre rut is on heavy but please don't confuse this with the main rut which won't bea for a couple more weeks maybe even not till September. This report is for zone 10. The other zones will all have their own dates and can differ dractically. I will also be reporting theese findings to the NJF&W. Good Luck

I’ve got a doe mounting and thrusting another doe on camera .. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦‍♂️
My good frend please dont confuse mounting and thrusting of young bucks as full rut. This is just them exploring what there feelings are but not quite sure how to exert there area down there. Good Luck.
