I️m out by Newcastle. Deer are definitely still eating acorns mainly. They hit the feeders occasionally. Been hunting a tripod more than my stand.
Where you at out by newcastle? I hunt along hwy 61 out there.
I haven't been out much this year so far, but overtime we have been out we have seen some decent deer. No booners, but there was a nice 10 pt buck I would have loved my daughter to shoot on youth weekend. Went out the next weekend with my son and we had some deer but they were really late getting out due to the warm weather. The next time we went out we had mainly lone bucks moving quickly through and the doe were all but absent. Haven't been out since. Going in a couple weeks hoping to catch a second rut.
Usually where we hunt the later season is gold as the wheat is up and the doe are preggo and need food. We usually don't see many bucks on this spot but we saw more this year so far than last year.
