    I would think that far north the rut should have been in full swing already...

    That's a huge misconception. A lot of people believe that the rut kicks in earlier the further north you go. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I have hunted NW Ontario for 13 years, as well as Saskatchewan and Alberta numerous times. The rut is always 1-2 weeks later that far north. What a lot of people fail to remember is that a whitetail's gestation length is the same no matter where they are. If they breed too early that far north, they run the risk of dropping fawns in colder weather.

    Slowest rut I have ever seen in my area. Gun season just ended and we are only now seeing the big boys move.

    Does anybody do food plots in Ontario? If so do, you have any tips for next spring?

    Not slow now since we got all that snow and cold on the weekend. All the deer are heading to the yard in Iron Bridge. In 3 2 hour sits since sunday I have seen a ton of deer on the move and killed a nice doe this morning. Go sit on a deer trail and you will be good.
