I am going to agree to disagree with most of you. I have a wall full of mid november bucks!! Take the 15th-21st.You are playing with too much fire on the first week. If the weather is warm,you are screwed.The rut will be delayed a little but by the 15th it does not matter.Also you'll have the best chance to kill the biggest bucks in your area then, not just the lil guys( I.E. 3 year olds and down)......just my .02

Lots of variables come into play here but personally I've always seen more activity in mid Nov than early Nov.

Stupid moon.

I'm confused :confused: but I don't think that you can bow hunt on Nov 21, isn't that opening day of shotgun. The first Fri. Sat. and Sunday before Thanksgiving would Nov. 21,22,23 You also may run into alot of shotgunners out hanging stands and whatnot a couple of days in advance. Maybe I'm wrong, this would be the second time :wink:.

This has been my experience as well hunting southern Illinois the last 10 years. The weather that first week has always been unpredictable. I have seen far too many warm fronts that first week. I will be there Nov 16th -23rd this year.
