    And to give a little more insight I hunt buy public lands so there's a lot of pressure

    Usually not until November. I see most of the peak activity where I hunt between 11/5 and 11/20. At least the last couple of years.

    The time I hit it hardest year in and year out is the last week of October and the first 2 weeks of November. You usually can't go wrong then. Using the estrus during this time is always a plus.

    I agree with what man said. It's basically the same time frame every year, but warm weather can sure put a hold on things. I've had my best action nov 3-9. Good luck!

    doe can breed in cycles, and a first cycle can be in early OCT or even LATE sept, BUt MOST doe's come into heat in the Nov 5-20 range IMO
    SO< any remaining will again go into heat again in Mid Dec and then LAN till there bred or time runs out on heat cycles

    SO that said, a Doe Estrus scent can work any time legal hunting season is on
    MOST all save it for the PEAK rut dates

    But IT can be used any time you want

    and its BY far NO magic in a bottle
    seen it spook as many bucks as its lured in
    SO< just saying

    any time from OCT 20 th to about Nov 30 th would be MY suggestion for best results
