After two weeks of a nasty cold that I am still fighting to make go away, I have finally made it out to see whats moving in the woods. The easy answer is, not a whole lot.. Last evening I saw a couple yearlings and a fawn. This evening I took a walk and saw a fawn early, and later I saw 2 fawns, 3 does, 2 spikes and either a 5 point or 6 point. None of this was what I was really hoping to see this evening with the weather change. I was really hoping one of those bigger bucks would finally be moving with the cooler weather and incoming nasty rain. That being said, it didn't happen before dark, in the area I was in.. Maybe they moved just after dark or in a different area.
With what they are saying, the next 2 - 3 days of steady soaking rain will mean no hunting for at least me. Also likely to mean the dear wont be moving much. Really hoping that the rain will get out of here Friday or Saturday and I and everyone else can get out in the woods. Deer should move pretty good after 2 days of rain and maybe the fact that we will be two days closer to the full moon will get the bigger bucks up and on their feet moving. I guess we will all just have to wait and see. That is what makes it hunting.
Anyone else get out before the rain got here and see anything good? Anyone seeing any more rubs or scraps?
