Any signs of the rut starting anywhere?

I'm thinking we must be getting close to the early part of the rut here in southern NH. Any word form up north or is it still too early?

Anyone? Buehler?

Quiet as a church around the woods around here. I went out Saturday and Sunday morning. I found one lone set of tracks on Saturday morning. Very fresh. My buddy and I checked out an area on Sunday morning where we had gotten a report of a cow and a bull hanging around. A little too developed and not remote enough. Just one old track. Sunday afternoon I went out solo and found a pretty good area. Still real wet despite the dry conditions and found what appeared to be three different sets of tracks. No cows calling yet. I would think maybe next weekend I would start hearing something. I might try calling and see what shows up. I made a coffee can call and it sounds OK. I have a Primos Moose Horn reed call but I'm not impressed with it. It's hard to make it trail off at the end. The sound abruptly stops when the reed stops vibrating when I'm reducing the pressure and air flow through the call to trail it off. Have you guys used just your voice to call? I watched the "Answer the Call" DVD about Maine moose hunting and those guys just used their voice. Any tips on calling from you moose masters?
