I hunt clay county and have had decent success seeing animals during season but last year was a bit of an anomaly, but my
Time experience is small (3 complete seasons) so it may be that the previous years were high and last year was different. Anyway, we typically have deer morning and evening, very little if any during the daytime where I hunt. Very sporadic hogs, not enough to even try to pattern, lots of coyotes and some Bobcats.
Bodies seem very healthy this year with an abundance of wet and growth, still very green and lush at my lease, I am sure you know this though living so close. Have seen some good deer on camera, have taken some nice deer the last couple years and hoping to get more this year. Going to hit bow season heavy this year, then early
November, and lay low through December. If we haven't gotten enough deer by rut we will hit it again in January and late season.
We don't typically see 150-160 class deer but we see plenty in the 120-130 range and an occasional 140 class deer on my cameras, yet to see one in person.
Where is your 2000 acres? I am south of Henrietta along 148, west side of the road.
Couple pics of what we are seeing this year:
