    what's the current state of the Red/Sika rut?

    Not had a chance to get out up north in a couple of weeks but I'm going to get a few days stalking in up north near Dalmally and up at Lairg, what's the state of the rut with the reds and sika generally?

    What Sika rut?

    So far it has been a funny year, yet again. Apart from a fair bit of whistling I have seen tw stags doing a wee bit of play pushing around, standing 10m from a bigger stag among the 15 hinds around them. All stags are still feeding away, not seen one sniffing around the back end of a hind and no young stags or spikers have yet to look nervous when near a big one!

    I reckon it will kick in proper in November at this rate, or perhaps they are having just wee sneaky ruts among the trees out of sight...

    Jammy do them tame deer you have there act differently during the rut

    A lot of whistleing going on in Wicklow, and a fair few deer on the move.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I was speaking to the stalker I was with the first week of Oct. He said some of the stags had finished and were heading of whence they came. West highlands.
