Mule Deer Rut Starting in Colorado Foothills
November 12, 2009.
Whenever I drive down out of the valley where I live in the Denver foothills, I typically see about 50 mule deer. That includes about 3 or 4 bucks.
There have been no signs of rutting behavior this year ... until today. A larger buck, one who I had not seen before, was following a doe and clearly checking her scent as he followed.
The rut is not in full swing yet by any means, but it seems to be starting to kick in. More and bigger bucks will start coming out of the wood work over the next 2 weeks.
