I have always noticed the most buck movement (pre rut) during the last week of October through the first week of November. Then they kinda lock down with the does.

ill have to disagree on that one a bit. i normally see the rut peaking around Thanksgiving. They may show some pre rut activity then but the does are not ready to be bred that early.
