They are hitting food plots (oats & wheat) and persimmons hard right now.

We were in the woods in north Jones all weekend and Monday morning. Two of us saw 4 spikes and a border line shooter 8 point along with more than a dozen does and fawns.
Lots of activity on our food plots, mostly does, fawns and small bucks during daylight. Small bucks are actively seeking. Lots of scrapes with bucks of all sizes visiting at all different hours. They're not hitting the white oaks nearly as hard as they were a few weeks ago. Evenings have been more productive than mornings.

Shot a great 8pointer yesterday morning before 8am. He was with a doe (not chasing) - following her and grunting - and running off a yearling buck. I'm pretty sure I made that yearling buck one happy fellow
First time I've ever tagged out in October!

Awesome news, hunting hard this weekend. Lot of day time pics of younger bucks checking scrapes and even a few following does about 10-15 min behind them.

My dad and I hunted Saturday 11/4 through yesterday 11/11. The heat made it tough for deer movement the first 4 days. I did get to witness one awesome chase last Sunday morning with two eight points vying for the same doe. Mornings were especially slow until the weather cooled down. Trail cam pics showed a significant decrease in deer movement during the warmer weather.

For the week we saw 15 bucks, 16 does, 12 yearlings, and 6 unidentified bodies. That was with 120 hours of tree time. Last two years 2015 and 2016 were more productive for seeing rutting activity. I suspect that was mainly a function of the weather.

I was lucky with to kill a nice 10 point with my bow on Monday 11/6. He was coming through a creek bottom that was loaded with scrapes.
