    They had started whistling a few weeks ago and a couple I shot recently were empty and smelly. Then the warm weather hit last week and everything went quiet. However, I was out on Sunday night and heard 3 stags whistling. Weather is forecast as getting down to 7deg towards the end of the week so things should really begin to kick off again...

    I was out with a guest over the last 2 days and watched stags standing side by side feeding among hinds. No sign whatsoever of any rutting activity. The one we shot today had a full belly. The mild weather really has put it all on hold just now.

    The rut here started 3 weeks ago then stopped, hearing a few stags whistling but not many. Saw 12 stags feeding together yesterday on neighbours ground, strange year. The Reds are rutting, last 2 we got had empty bellies and were stinking.Hopefully the Sika will get going again shortly

    There is scrapes and wallows all over our ground as well from when it started to kick off.
