this afternoon I had two bucks prowling by themselves, and one of them appeared to be working a scrape. When the creek drops I'll go over to check if it's a scrape.

And it's a darn good thing I left the herd bull alone and and healthy for about 4 years. His genes are looking good on the young bucks.

we did an aerial survey on thursday near PK lake, 9 of 29 mature bucks were with does. Hunted north of Throckmorton sat and sun and didn't see a single buck with a doe, and saw 14 does sat, 8 does with fawn sun morning. 60 miles apart, but a huge difference.

Not sure where you are at but its in full swing in Coke county. Spent the last week out there and most of the better bucks are completely ignoring corn. Most of them come in and check the feeders for Does and if they don't see any then they keep on going. If you do have Does around they wont be for long because a buck will be by shortly to run them off for you. During the two day cool spell we had I saw Bucks running Does all day long while filling feeders and actually in the stand.

Monday just sitting in the blind watching nature go by. Had a doe that has been showing up gc finally show up at the feeder and grazing. In a little bit she jumps and runs in the tall grass. Im glassing and yep a buck is in the high grass and never comes in for the corn, the doe takes off and he follows after her and I never saw the buck again. Its close here too!!

They are getting close here, again this evening a doe was under the feeder and was nervous, looking around. She bolted out and a 9pt came right in, was milling around eating some corn, then he went out quick. Light was leaving so didn't get to see what spooked him out. And SURE its going to rain Saturday. That's hunting!! confused2

The pre-rut action has certainly started. Way down by the border I saw bucks rubbing, scraping, and sparring just last week.
