Ironton Ohio here...seen a few button bucks and small basket racks but have seen signs that the big ones are rubbing on trees so from the size of the tree that they rubbed it should be a good year.

I rattled in a nice buck in yesterday morning. I had a buck decoy out, the wind was perfect, he tended his scrapes and thrashed some trees with his antlers...and walked off. I did a snort weez and he still just walked off.

I moved my stand closer to his scrape line and went back this morning and the ESE wind was screwing everything up it's the absolute worst wind direction for the property I'm hunting

I just can't win

you need to have other spots set up or still huntt from the ground when the wind is bad for your stand.otherwise your going to be counting trees and alerting the deer with your smell

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Yeah, That's what I did tonight. I had a ground blind that I built a few weeks ago and sat in there tonight. I saw a nice buck chasing a doe right at dark and another buck came into my decoys! Too bad he was a would-be 6 pointer...he only had one side.

Oh well, it was exciting to see the action getting going
