I seen a buck checking does and pushing a smaller buck off this evening. It is getting close......I still think it wont get nuts till right around Christmas like years past. I will be out there hunting with my bow and will let you know..........

Watched a decent coues buck push a couple of does and also get into what I would call a playful sparring match with a smaller buck on the late November hunt. It was right after that storm that moved through the last weekend of the hunt.

smaller bucks were pushing does this morning, and a small 4 pt was pushing does for a few minutes till the sun came out. then he left them and bedded down, no serious rut action from what ive seen yet. and quite a few does without any bucks in tow still

I saw quite a few fresh scrapes above 8000 in the Huachucas last weekend. And at 5500 or so, I watched a little guy mount a doe. She was ok for about 20 seconds then decided nope and wiggled her way away. It seems that about half the younger bucks I've seen in the past week were walking in the footsteps of the ladies. It makes for interesting watching. Like ya'll know, we are a month out of peak activity, at least down south at 5-6000ft.

Saw a bunch of bucks acting pretty rutty this weekend. Scrapes, rubs, chasing does, lip curling, everything but breeding. I would say it is definatly getting started. The best bucks are still not with does but 80-90 inch bucks are. Biggest ones are still on the roam. Central az unit.

Southern az unit,spent the last 4 days hunting and only saw spikes and forkies with does.a little bit of the small bucks pushing the does but for the most part they were all relaxed.saw two bucks sparring yesterday and a nice roaming 3x3,but I'm guessing they won't start rutting in that area at least until after Christmas
