Thread: Any signs the Reds are rutting?

    Any signs the Reds are rutting?

    I've been invited up to Norfolk this weekend to get out for a stag.

    I was up there the same weekend last year and the Reds were really going at it but, it's been considerably milder this year.

    Has the warm weather slowed things up?

    I was wearing scarf, gloves etc.. and still shivering up the high seat 27th Sept last year.

    Anybody noticed anything happening especially in Norfolk?

    Hi I shot a large stag last week sat in a high seat in the eve just a t-shirt and fleece, it has been mild here all this week and I have seen a lot of Reds moving around.
    Hope you have a good time in Norfolk, where abouts are you heading
    Regards

    What warm weather lol:

    I sat in a high seat for two hours this morning wrapped in fleece & jacket, hood up and gloves on. When I got down i was shaking with cold and soaked through

    To make matters worse all I got for my troubles was a fleeting glimpse of a doe and kid 1/4 mile away.

    I know my situation is somewhat different but my Romanian reds have been rutting for a month now; but that is one of the reasons I bought them. Calves born from end of April have a tremendous advantage over those born June/July.

    On another post somone mentioned deer getting into winter coat early.
    This is happening here too. I haven't kept records on this but it does seem earlier than normal and given the Indian summer we are having seems a bit odd. We will have to wait and see if it is a sign of a hard winter.

    Have fun in Norfolk Moses, some good deer over there.
