Went to ck trail cams this evening wind had died down around 4 . Had a yearling at feeder and a good sized doe down in the flat.At least something to see . No chasing activity yet.
 
The rut will be on fire next week for a lot of counties. Nothing but fresh scent in the woods. Old scrapes will need freshening up. The cold has kicked in. The ground will be wet and quiet. Ah man they is about to get busy.
Timing is right finally with this next rain delay. They’ll wanna run to warm up and dry out. Watch and wait for it.

I hunted Saturday and Sunday, it is about like it has been lots of does still grouped up together and small bucks chasing them. The does aren't really interested yet. I think we are very close to it just busting out. I saw deer at every sit just nothing that I wanted to take yet. I had a great weekend I saw a young bobcat fail to catch a squirrel and I watched a beautiful red fox cross an opening. It was a wonderful time to be out in the woods. The temperatures are great and the leaves are fantastic, we are blessed folks.

Had two does with yearlings around 8:30 Then four pt following their trail at 9 Then six pointer. Got to be chasing soon!
 
Been slow past few days, wind was whipping like crazy this morning. Decided to get up and walk a bit and found some fresh rubs and a fresh scrape.
 
Shot a mature 7 point, in Ila yesterday the 27th. Seen a doe acting spooky, then a four pointer messing with her, and Mr big wouldn’t have that.
