    I hunted for 10 days straight in WI and didn't lay my eyes on any rut activity at all. Also didn't see a shooter either. Did anyone else in Wisconsin have a good week or was it slow every where in here?

    No rubs, scrapes or deer. Not even on camera for a full week.

    Had several trail cam pics of does in heat (walking with their tails straight back) the week of the 26th. Saw most buck movement then. Didn't see a deer all week this past week.

    I hunted from Oct 30th-November 9th from dark to dark and saw a ridiculous amount of 1 1/2 year old bucks. On Friday November 6th saw 30 deer when the cold front came in, nearly all in bow range, 12 bucks and 18 does and fawns. Not one 2 1/2 year old or older all week.

    Saw a decent sized buck chasing a hot doe at 9am on Saturday morning. Otherwise that has been it for me in WI. I hear reports of hunters nearby seeing tons of activity, so there is still hope. Any one going to hunt the rifle season this year?
