just got back from PA today. Rut is 4-5 days late. Just this morning we saw 1 nice buck on the move. When we arrived all the scrapes were cold, leaves in them. After a full 8 days of hunting no deer were harvested. My son and another buddy missed small legal bucks both 5 pts, the newbie in camp unfortunately had a buck drop back on the shot and hit the shoulder. We lost that buck after a long track and no blood trail. I didn't see a legal buck at all. In fact I saw very few deer period. The peak rut will be another 5-8 days from now. We totally missed the rut. Well I'm done for the year.
