I don't get in many bow hunting days anymore, pretty much all in 1 trip to PA. Leaving Nov 3rd for about 1.5 weeks of hunting. We catch a bit of pre-rut and hit the main rut the last full week. Report from camp is about same as last year with few deer being seen and a few low grade bucks spikes, 4 and a 6 pt. It's been real dry there as it has been here. We need some rain and colder temps. I talked to my buddy in the UP of Michigan last night and he shot a spike (rage broadhead). It's the only deer he has seen so far. Not good for his area SW of Marquette.

The Rut predictors said this was going to be a trickling type rut and so far I have no doubts on their predictions...
I've seen a few does and 2 very small bucks nothing I could take a shot at with the Bow but things sure have been really slow so far....
I hope something changes real soon.

same here in Missouri. not alot of activity so far. the nights are getting cooler, but not cold enough. We've had 2 frosts so far, but waiting for that first freeze. getting tired of the mildly warm days... I like the 50-60 degree days w/30 degree nights!

I've only been out hunting twice so far but the trail cams are getting lots of movement. Last Saturdays check got me 3 good bucks moving, only one in daylight (at the camera anyway) But I know they're on their feet in daylight to get where they were. A trickle rut would be fine with me. It'll keep the bucks on the move longer.
