Just want to see if anyone is having any luck in Young County? Only luck we've had is we found a nice little cafe close to the lease with a killer chicken fried steak on Saturday nights

If it got any better we wouldn't know what to do,,, wait, there are no deer in Young county, or they are all nocturnal.

Hunt a wheat field that last year I would see 30-60 deer an evening in...thisbyear we see stuff come out right at minute before legal shooting ends. Totally different from last year. Isnít anything we have done thatís for sure. Nocturnal animals are usually the product of hunting pressure. We do hear more shots this year than last.

Interestingly, the deer we see this year have been predominantly Bucks and not doe, a complete opposite from last year too. Weird. Figured this past weekend would be great given the temps, it wasnít.

Before season during bow and youth season, we saw lots of action. Both good bucks and doe. Just never took any shots. I guess we should have been more trigger happy

A lot of activity recently, this past Saturday evening I saw 7 different bucks and three doe within about an hour sit. I took a nice 10 with split brow tines two weeks ago. I haven't really seen any rutting "activity" to speak of. Although, I think we're on the backside of the rut.

Last few weeks have been very slow in Young county. At least on our family ranch.

We've seen plenty of deer, several spikes and numerous young bucks, seems to be more young bucks than young does, and haven't seen nearly as many doe as last year. It has been a strange season, but next year should be better. Only have a couple shooters on camera. Not as many legal bucks on camera as last year. Don't know where the big bucks are hiding. We are hearing lots of coyotes!

SLOW is an understatement. My place is heavily wooded and there are acorns in some trees and everywhere you step. Hunted this place 11 years, never seen the lack of deer movement as I have this season. Corn at a few feeders piling up and NO PICS of a shooter buck since October. Gonna hunt the week after Christmas, hope conditions improve.

Anyone with some updates around Murray? Headed out this week, hoping the acorns are gone and deer are finally moving like normal again. Please advise and thanks.

Was at the lease from Tuesday night tI'll this morning. Still pretty slow in our area, saw the same group of doe just about every other sit. I didn't see any horns, my buddy says he saw a big ol mule of a buck about 450yds out Saturday evening trailing some doe and a nice 8pt this morning but he was pretty young so he let him walk. Popped of coyote Wed afternoon and took a pig Saturday afternoon, weighed in at 175lbs..new record for our place(not a whole lot of pig traffic anymore). We're heading out this weekend as well...I've got a good feeling.

Me neither, I won't go looking for them but if they show up while I'm deer hunting they get shot at. I heard that as well. Best of luck to you as well!
