Didn't get to go hunting on the first day of my vacation but we went for a drive around the property where we hunt and it looks like things are picking up. Saw deer up and moving and a medium size buck was running like a crazed fool across a wheat field right out in front of us. He kept on running and didn't even notice he could have been wiped out. Hopefully our family is done with this stomach bug so we can get out there.

Looks like we have finally got a bit of rut sign in our area. I went out to do a bit of baiting and saw a couple brand new scrapes close to my stand (same places they have used for years). Decided to leave a bit of buck urine on those scrapes hoping to get the locals irritated at the "newcomer"....lol!

I'll be sitting by 1 hour before SR tomorrow morning, opener for Ky gun.

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.
