    Roe Rut Scottish Borders

    Any signs chaps? I was out all weekend no signs what's so ever, it was a tad cold i must say though. Need a weather change i think.

    Anybody else seen anything happening in the borders?

    Hi

    Yes lots of activity in the Tweed Valley. I was watching several bucks fighting / chasing and actually saw a buck cover a doe. I have had three in the last few days so definitely well under way.

    certainly looked in evidence 2 weeks ago.
    shot a buck that only presented itself after darting in to the woods and then chasing the doe out again.

    we were standing out on a margin in full view when it came in to 20-25yds chasing the doe, oblivious to our presence

    It must be happening all around me then, or has happened! iv'e seen nothing, nor have my mates in and around Selkirk / Hawick area. I must have seen at least ten does at the weekend not one with a buck.

    Time yet though hopefully!!
