I was wondering when the rut ushually takes place. i have read a little about the central states like Kansas and i figured that our deer rut ushualy takes place around nov. 14th or so. i have been hunting this one area for 4 yrs or so and never really see much buck activity such as scrapes or rubs. my friends have shot a few bucks out of the same area. i ushually hunt for meat but this year i want horns! can you guys help me out with this?
