Seeing lots of slicks and young Bucks...No real sign of rut that I've seen but it's usually started by now. Young bucks are running Does a little but not much. Not see any older Bucks.

We are also seeing lots of young bucks. Not seeing many does but the ones we have seen have had bucks following them. A few have had bucks chasing them hard. Have seen bucks out cruising all day. Not much activity at the feeders. Lots of acorns on the ground and still falling.

Same, Saturday morning was busy but Saturday afternoon was fairly slow. Lots of acorns here too.

We are seeing tons of deer, have not seen many mature deer chasing but lots of young bucks wanting to chase every thing in sight! My son shot a nice 5.5 year old 8 point yesterday evening probably had already seen 12-15 doe and 7-10 young bucks when he shot him at 5pm!

Hey Chester!!!

I hunted Sat morning and evening, and between both hunts, I only saw one small spike. Everyone on our place was seeing low numbers. I spoke with the game warden, and he said things were really slow right now. I plan to not hunt the feeder next time I go, and find a draw and maybe do some walking around a little.

Loc: murphy, tx: young/stephens cou...
we're to the north in young county, part of our lease is Stephens county too, and it was a really slow weekend. I'm usually covered up in doe, sometimes as many as 11 at one feeder...saw a mother and 2 yearlings on one hunt, another was being pursued by really young 4pt. Not even the hogs are hanging around, saw one but he moved through before I could put my cross hairs on him. Our place is usually in high gear by early-mid December.

Heading out in the morning! They have been chasing since opening. Wonder if this front will have any effect on them. Bring on the cold weather!

Just got home, spent noon to dark Tuesday, all but lunchtime yesterday, and half of today in my stand. It's on the PK waterline and looking east has a 200 yard peek at anything moving north-south and another hundred yards towards a stock tank. In all those hours I saw one (1) scrawny no-shooter 4-pointer. No other deer to be seen. If there's a rut going on its somewhere else in the county. Did see a grey fox, a really nice bobcat and a coyote. Lots of puddle ducks on the tank. No turkey, no hogs. So, the 'yote became my next shoulder mount.

The chasing I saw were all really young bucks including a couple of nubbins!?! I really wish the cold would get here. Not just to get the deer moving but also because I just love being out there when it's frosty.

Walking around is a good idea, especially Saturday since the gusty wind will cover up sound really well.

Same story over in Shackelford Co. Lots of young bucks. Some chasing, others marking trees.

Finally saw a Buck tending a Doe this morning, he wasn't leaving her side and she wasn't running from him. Have hunted every day except 3 since season opened and have not seen a mature Buck yet. Had some on camera but they disappeared just before season started. Very little shooting from anywhere so far this season. Very strange year so far.
