Sat in my tree stand today and sweat my @$$ off......


All I saw were 2 does at the 7am feeder go off and a bunch of squirrels in near by trees.
Wondering if we will even have a rut this year with as warm as it is keeping everything so green.

At this rate deer will stay nocturnal and lay low during the day to stay cool.

I hear you. But despite the temps lately, I've got bucks sparring on camera. Of course this was at night.

The rut will come regardless.

If your not hunting near a water source right now you should be. up

It has been unseasonably warm/hot. It was upper 90's yesterday in Knox County. And what is this El Nino they keep speaking of? We haven't had any measurable amount of rain since July. Tanks are dry or very low. The good lord gave us such a good Spring. I guess I should have never dropped the rain from my prayers, even when dams were being breached and spillways overflowing.

As a kid in Marshall, I always considered September to be the hottest month. That might have been lack of A/C at Davy Crockett Elementary or just that I was not outside anymore and summer was over.

But yep. it's hot again. I turned on the A/C in the Cave last night.

Hopefully y'all are right and the morning hunts are when the movement occurs.
