I do believe this cooler weather has got things firing in Webster. Bachelor groups are broken up and the little guys are checking the does. Shot a 3-1/2yr old buck cruising on Saturday. 188pds 7pts only about 12 in wide
Congrats on the buck! Had the whole gang together at paradise this weekend for a little time in the woods. No big boys seen but quite bit of movement of does and smaller bucks. No evidence of any chasing, bucks are laying ground work pretty heavily now and cameras indicate the big boys they are still moving in the early morning hours after midnight. Give it another week or so and things should really pick up. Oldest son was able to harvest a hog, daddy and my middle son took a doe each for some freezer meat as well as herd management. Daddy and I are here for the duration to mind the fort while the young ones returned to work. We will all be ready when things get hot.
Still not any chasing seen on our place. Deer on the move and a lot of that is at night. Sooner or later it has to start, hope we are sitting in the right spots when it happens. Still seeing small bucks and does.
Slow all year, a few does and one buck opening weekend, and the last two weeks we have had 4 nice bucks hit the ground. Weird. We rarely get more than one or two bucks after November. See what happens these remaining two weeks. Trying to get a newbie teenager in on the action.
Ok, boys and girls, firearms opener is this weekend. I am sure everyone is getting fired up and ready. Recent rain has helped the food plots. Stands are ready, roads are clear, expectations are high. We had one bow kill doe and are seeing young bucks, healthy does, and a few pigs on camera. Good luck all.
After bouncing on tractor for a day trying to prepare plots for planting, I would not give you a penny for a pig, but I would pay you a bunch to take all of them and guarantee me they would not any come back! Our plots a week ago were the best they have been in several years. The rain has been good this year even though the 5 plus inches was a little much at one time, not complaining at all.
