not a lot of sign here in southwest VA yet starting to see some rubs around and found one scrape so far. the rut usually hits within the next two weeks around here so should be right when muzzleloader opens which is always a plus

The bucks are starting to here. My daughter called me yesterday and said she ran a doe out of her backyard and there was an eight point jumped into the pond and swam across to where the doe was. I guess I need to have coffee on her back porch one morning. :)

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

here in southwest VA we had a big cold front roll in right when Sandy did creating a lot of wind and snow and COLD weather (for this area at least) have already seen three bucks chasing, and 1 set sparring. cant wait for opening day of muzzleloader this Saturday!

Plus, this wooded area I'm talking about is approx 35 acres and has a very deep creek that runs completely around it making it hard for deer to access it all times of the year. When it rains, the deer stay out of the woods b/c they know when the creek is up, they can't get out- which we're talking about at full capacity 8+feet deep and over 20+feet across. Typically though, the creek is low with less than a foot of water in most areas.

My biggest problem with hunting this wooded area is finding a good place to hunt. There is no way to get a tractor down there to brush hog or to "clean it up". It's very thick in the summer (you can easily get lost) and there are 1,000's of trees down there. sounds bad, but if the creek wasn't there, it's be a HEAVEN of a spot to hunt!
Build a bridge and they will come.....Ha Ha

I'm seeing mostly chasing going on, no breeding yet. Now granted, I haven't been out a whole lot lately. Missouri usually hits the nail on the head with the rut and firearms season. Rarely are they "off" so much that you don't see activity. Our rifle season starts saturday and i'm itching SOOOOOOOO badly to get out there!
