I live in norther illinois and i haven't noticed a strong rut this year. What's other places looking like? Given I can only hunt weekends due to college it has still been slow. I've had some nice bucks on camera but all of them during the night. Two weeks ago I saw a small 110" chasing a doe and this weekend I brought in a 120" 8 with some doe urine. Other than that I haven't seen much of anything. Are you guys having a slow rut too? I'll upload some pics I got later today.
