congrats to yal that took nice bucks already. what do yal have in mind about the clay rut? i know a matter of days. saw some bucks, hundreds of scrapes, more than ussual. i usually dont care about scrapes but was surprised how many ive seen this weekend. here's to hoping the rut will be extra intense! any thoughts?

We saw a little running this weekend but from previous years I thank this coming up week will be it in our neck of the woods in Clay county
 
I have been here since thanksgiving day and I have to say it's more of a trickle rut this year . We have killed 3 good deer and have only seen one chase so far . The two 4 yr old bucks still had cotton white hocks. Our southern tracts seem to be have more fresh scrapes and rubs
 
One of our member saw a stud 10 point running a doe this past weekend. We are heading up Thursday with this front coming through should be good we normally have a good rut around the 9th

Been some nice bucks shot on our place the last few days. They are defiantly up and moving now.

Shot my second buck yesterday morning, a pretty nice 10 point. He and another buck were fighting in the pines behind me. I couldn't see them but they were getting down and in a few minutes they stopped. Then a couple minutes later I saw movement coming my way, it was a 10 pt. I shot him and he ran about 10yds and piled up. A few minutes later I caught more movement coming my way, it was a even bigger 10 pt that I have had pictures of on my trail camera. He is a 6 x 4, I had to to let him walk though , and that was the hardest thing to do, maybe my son will be lucky enough to take him for his second buck. The buck I killed had a wad of hair from the other buck stuck on one of his brow tines.

I shot him this morning. The bucks were ever-where. lots of bucks. I can only hope this was the biggest one of the morning, as my spot is pretty thick, they weren't giving me any time to scope them out! none of the 5 or 6 bucks i saw this morning were running a doe, might mean some even bigger boys have the does locked down? southwest clay....
