    Don't know about southern Wisc, but here in the Great Southwest, not yet.
    We've had one light frost. It's going to take a hard freeze to bring deer to feeders. Lot'sa wheat up but as long as the browse holds out, they won't touchthat either.

      You do realize that even though weather helps, the rut is basically triggered by the amount of sunlight hitting the deers' retina.

        Yes i do realize that but it seemed a week or two early this year and the movement that i have been seeing is very unpredictable. I have three buck on camera that will all score over 160 without a dought, and it seems just weird that they would be moving this much this early.

          here in michigans eastern upper peninsula, ive seen a doe standing in a group of about 20 other does, with her tail straight up in the air, it looks like the heat might have gotten to her a little early. also about 40 yards away from the group of does, there were several groups of bucks sparring, and one set of bucks was full blown hard core fighting. also 3 bucks we're circling each other, and would take turns sparring between the 3 of them
