    @augmizer, The Portal side is a great area. Find brushy Canyon like I mentioned before and you’ll be good. You’ll see plenty of deer if you get out into the hills and sit behind those 15s, be diligent behind the glass and slowly scan the hills. Once you scan a area, scan it again and again. This time of year they love to be in the sun early as it comes up. I hunted the rut last year with a friend and saw good bucks every day during the last week. I’ll be out in 36a tomorrow helping someone. Good luck!

    All the ones I've killed haven't seemed to care how it was pronounced.

    I was out this past weekend. Still kind of slow and the hammer bucks are not rutting yet where I was. That being said, tonight and tomorrow night we have a “hard freeze” in effect so it should start up real quick. I saw some younger bucks dogging some does but nothing crazy. I was in Wilcox and Safford today on business and the Chiricahua mountains are snow capped and MT Graham outside of Safford is snow capped. This week it should start as temps will be chilly at night and daytime highs only in the 40-50s. Good luck.

    In San Manuel Friday- no serious rutting going on. Bucks are scraping in the Pinals though.
