We are heading up there this weekend. Keeping fingers crossed. Planted (peas/clover) & put out corn ~month ago. Drove up last weekend to check cameras and refill corn. A few does on camera, but ZERO bucks.
Only need to see 2 deer (son/stepson) to make it a great trip.
I haven't made it up to hunt this year due to work. Did make it up to do a little work saw a decent bit of sign and a few deer. My friends place just outside of Moultrie has seen a bunch of deer so far but no big bucks during daylight hours. I'm trying to get up there to hunt the weekend before thanksgiving if I can work it out.
We are heading up Friday morning. Hoping to put my stepson on a buck. Size is not important. He has shot 2 does, but no bucks. Hope my son gets something as well, but don't care if it is a doe or a 10pt.
Deer on our small place disappeared completely. Went from having daytime pics every other day and tons of night pics to an occasional night pick. We only have 20 acres, but we only hunt it ~2-3 weekend/yr. We only take 1 or 2 deer off of it.
Last day, did a little walk about the property, towards the east where we never venture to avoid spreading our scent all over the woods, and I found a lock on stand, in the creek bottom. Looks like the local poachers extra hunting pressure wasn't accounted for in our overall hunting scheme.
