Starting this one for the year. Cool weather coming this week, hopefully thatíll jump start the deer activity.

Bucks are still grouped up where I’m at. I was able to kill a nice 11 point Thursday evening out of a bachelor group on a food source.

I saw a couple fresh scrapes today on a field edge when I went to check a camera at lunch. Anybody getting to hunt?

North Grady county. Saw a fresh scape out in the open of the corn field lastnight up near Mitchell county line. Getting a lot more daytime pics of does and smaller bucks over the last 3 Days. Bucks are still grouped up though.

Got a new smaller 6 point on camera from early hours of this morning. Seems to be heating up but still should be a couple weeks before it hits prime in north Grady county

My cameras are showing some does starting to get checked while on the corn pile. Nothing too hot and heavy right now but you can tell it’s on their minds. Also getting more pics than normal of bucks sparring. Weird year though, I’ve not seen many younger bucks from the stand as I normally do in years past. Loving this consistently cool-ish weather though. Probably a couple weeks out still in Grady.

Hortonhunter22 sent me a pic today of a nice 8 point killed this morning in middle Grady County that was swollen but not really stinking yet. Said it was in a field with 9 does when shot.

Anybody had any luck? Saw a young 8 trailing a doe last Sunday (full moon) hoping that's a sign of a good rut to come in next few weeks. Hopefully after this rain the cold weather will get these more mature bucks out n about during daylight hours. Good luck to everyone

They are on there feet in South Grady. Missed a mature 8pt. at
15 yds with the recurve Sunday morning. When I got down I pulled 5 camera chips and had several daytime mature buck pics from the week. Will get back after them this weekend. Only bad thing is the loggers moved in today to cut about a 60acre section. Hope it won't take them long.

Very nice buck for Calvary. Whereabouts do you hunt? I'm in the same area as well. Starting to see some good sign and new bucks showing up on cameras. Hopefully they start chasing soon

I agree... Swamp creek Im starting to see more sign. Bucks have split up, does are still grouped, but yearlings have been kicked away. Nocturnal like crazy right now though. 7 game cams and I only had 10 day pics last week out of almost 6000 photos. Scrapes went cold last week but many were freshened today. Drove to Miller county to hunt today...not a single dead deer in the ditches on the way up or back. All of this kinda makes me think that they haven't hit full rut yet.

I saw chasing and fighting from the stand last Sunday morning. Was able to hunt 3 evenings this week and other than Monday movement was minimal. All I’ve seen so far is younger bucks chasing and fighting. It should be happening between now and Christmas if it’s going to happen based on my experience here.

Watching a small 6 cruise the creek right now. So far this morning it was only a button buck, spike, and tiny 6. No does, no mid level bucks, and obviously no shooters. Almost every year the rut on my farm is Christmas eve to close of season. Last year it started the last weekend of season. We really need to get our legislature to change our dates....
