2021 Rut.... in Mule Deer Hunting Posted January 10 · Report reply Seems like the rut varies by location? I was up in 24a last weekend and just saw solo doe's and 1 solo buck (youngster). Up in the mountains (man, it's a shame the burn it got (again), but should be good in a few years). The rut should be starting (or I missed it, lol). Good luck all!
