When does the rut usually occur in Dallas County east of Selma? Is now a good time to be out?

I agree with Turkey neck, the 10th on seems the best. Been hunting just South of Old Cahaba for 20 years. As of last weekend, the bucks were still in groups but they were sniffing the does that would come out.

Can anyone report on the activity in Dallas County east of Selma?

I'm planning on being down there next week.

I hunt east of Selma near Tyler. I can't give you a personal report as I've been offshore since the end of Dec. However, I will be there starting the 9th. Guys in my lease say they aren't seeing much buck activity but they aren't as serious as I am. I normally have good luck the week you plan to hunt so you should hit it about right. The full moon is on the 15th so you can expect to see some good action leading up to the full moon in my opinion.

Been in Sardis for 2 days. No rut activity whatsoever. A lot of movement, no chasing though

Really? I watched several bucks from the house Sunday night that were pestering every doe that came across the lil power line in the back yard and they weren't just 2 yr olds doing it.

Quick update. So far I've seen two small bucks out cruising and one possible shooter trailing a doe. Only had a spike in bow range so far.

Another up date. I've seen 10 so far with 6 of those bucks. Only one was behind a doe and the others were out cruising. I passed up a 100 to 110" 9 pt with my bow standing 10 steps from base of my tree. I say some rut action is here.

Hunted in Minter Jan 1-6, rut was not yet going full bore. some small bucks pestering the does but I had one field with 6 young bucks and 9 does and the young bucks never even approached a doe. Saw scrapping but its still not quite there, my guess is the 10th on its gonna be great.

I was shocked also. We hunted tues pm, all day Wednesday, Never saw less than 15 per trip, smaller bucks feeding in the same field with 10+ doe. I was really shocked. I was with 12 other hunters and we all had the same results.

Update for yesterday afternoon. I saw 15 with 4 being bucks. Two were mature and one of those were following behind a doe and yearling. Not chasing he was just walking behind them 50 to 60 yards. The other mature buck had no interest in does. He was just out feeding. To bad he was only a 4 pt or he would have seen his last sun rise. Huge body and neck just poor genetics.

I hunted in Valley Grande since Tuesday. I saw the same broken 6 pt pester several does over the corse of the 4 days. Saw a nice 8pt pushing a doe Tuesday. Would have tapped his ass if he had given me a shot. Then I watched several smaller bucks feeding with does. Watched a smaller buck work a scrape too. So over all a mixed bag. Think we are on the upswing. We will see in a day or so.

Up date from yesterday afternoon. I saw 8 deer total with two being bucks. Both looked to be cruising as they weren't feeding just walking with their nose to the ground. I did see a good 6 pt this morning on my way to the camp that seemed to be locked on a doe.
