From what I have read in recent posts it appears that the roe rut started early in the North and before the south. Is this normal or are we in a strange year?
What actually triggers the rut and do different age does come into oestrus at different times (eg mature does earlier)?
I saw the first signs of a rut today, when driving to work I saw a doe with two well grown kids being persued by a very handsome buck.
Other stalkers in the area say they have seen activity for the last couple of weeks.
In previus years all the activity I have seen has been in early August.
