almost exactly what happened to me. I got in a little later than I wanted. Right as a got to base of the ladder stand a couple does bounded off from my shooting lane and he was with them. He never knew I was there, but the does took him away from me. Hoping I see him tonight
In Reno/south Grady - not seen any chasing yet. Bucks still feeding in plots and on corn. scraping like crazy since Thanksgiving, they keep making them deeper and making new ones. I'd say it is almost on there, should hit peak rut about January 20 - 30, lol.
