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.
That's encouraging. Hunted total of five hours yesterday .Only deer I saw was running alongside the road near my house Watched a million squirrels munch up my corn and a mother coon with three younguns come by. Two fox squirrels also. Will give it a try Monday am. They got to get fired up. This time last year had two 8 pointers .
