Checked our woods in West Miller co, no rain yet. Drying out fast.

Just left farm in Miller. Dry, lots of deer activity looks like mainly during the night with this full moon. Did hear a shot about sunset.

My cameras are showing most deer activity is at night, early mornings. While the air is full of dust caused by peanut harvesting. It's the sneeze season.

I remained home to repair my ezgo club car, had a bad motor bearing.

Yep, lower land is still holding tight. Shallow swamps drying up. It's because run off has stopped.

Woods are flooded again, some say we got over 2 inches this week. I haven't hunted yet.
 
Jumping in here posting what im seeing with bucks in North Miller county. I leave out at 5:15am every morning and I usually see a lot of deer at that time . Im still seeing young bachelor groups ( 5 to 7 two/three year old) several mornings a week. No mature bucks yet . We are seeing bucks also while hunting but they are young.

I’m seeing the same as you, saw a bachelor group this past weekend and my trail cameras are still showing bucks together. They should start splitting up in the next couple of weeks and becoming a little more territorial, especially with the cooler weather. Scrapes are being freshened and seeing some sparring from the young bucks.

I haven't gotten any photo's of a bachelor groups in couple weeks now. Not seeing many mature bucks yet, but those seen are alone now. Be glad when the cotton fields around us are harvested, because bucks love to lay up in cotton.

Spent two days hunting on the Early Miller county line near Springfield. Couple of us saw no deer either day. Could it be the lull before the action begins? Seeing a few big rubs around. I watching trails, no bait used. Couple using corn saw some small deer early in the mornings.

We had a moderate rain in the Mayhaw, Springfield area of Miller and Early counties yesterday. Most deer activity has been at night with a few showing up just after sunrise.

Finally deer began moving good today in W. Miller co. Ga. Saw five this morning, one was a six point. This afternoon at 5:15, had a fine young 8 walk by. Nice rack, no mass so he was free to go.
 
I saw a lot of activity in Miller county yesterday evening. Does and bucks but nothing that suggested any rut activity. The bucks ( 3) mingled with the does and would do a quick turn and follow if a doe walked by but then stop and go right back to eating. The bucks ( 4 pt, young 8 and a very mature shooter that never completely stepped out enough to give me a decent shot). Im thinking another few weeks and things should really heat up.

Usually, the mature bucks begin roaming more around Thanksgiving and will respond to rattling and calling. The rut has been hitting us around Dec 10th or so. Young bucks are hitting scrapes now.
