A friend and I have tags for Colorado (near Steamboat) November 3-9th. I was wondering what to expect as far as rut behaviour. I've been told this time should be "pre-rut". I also have a Utah (near Salt Lake) archery tag, which has several "extended" areas. Meaning the seasons run through November, into mid December. When should I expect the rut to take place? I find myself surprised I don't really know what to expect from the muley rut. While I usually hunt elk while they rut, I've always hunted muleys during the archery (summer) and general (october) seasons. I'd greatly appreciate any advice on what to expect regarding behavior and timing of the rut.
