    Better food has popped up somewhere. Are acorns falling? Ag crops maturing or being harvested?? Where do you live???

    Can't say the weather has changed much, just a little cooler. No acorns on the ground on my property, but I can't say for the 400 acres behind my house. No crops anywhere near me, just woods. Mid Atlantic state.

    This happens every year. 1 week before the season opens, the entire population of deer move away. I keep feed out for them, but they walk away from what they know is a sure meal. I mean I don't even get the yearlings to stay around. This big 9 pointer usually walks around with a 6 pointer and he's gone too. I have a group of 5-6 does, who come around and they're gone.

    It's frustrating. Because of health issues, I can't get around well enough to get deep into the woods, so I'd like to be able to take one on my own property. I'm not giving up hope. I'll keep the corn out and see what happens. I can actually hunt from my patio or deck. So it's easy to keep the crossbow ready. They usually show up around dusk of shortly after.

    Wish me luck!

    The October lull. Very common but no one knows why for sure. Magazine experts suggest change in feeding habits brought on by weather cooling. I was hoping you could help with confirmation. I'm about to hunt PA 1st week in Oct. Usually when I do this, all those summer bucks on camera are nowhere to be seen. I'll be trying the white oaks this year.

    Hogs have been out heavy the last week. Couple cold fronts and a bunch of rain lets them come out of all the holes.

    No sign of my monster from last year yet. We had a relatively mild winter, so I hope he made it. Seeing a few spikes, forks, basket racks, and one decent but young 8 on camera. For some reason, my property doesn’t see much for summertime mature buck activity, but when the Rut hits I usually end up seeing 2-3 nice mature deer chasing does through that I’ve never seen before. Just waiting for October 1st...

    Another picture of the 9 pointer. He seemed to have left and came back. Now I need him to come back during shooting hours.

    Here's something crazy! The buck was tiny, we hunt near Freedom, Oklahoma. Our mature bucks average about 200lbs. This one weighed 128lbs!

    This guy showed up this morning. Stayed for 35 minutes on the corn. Had a doe with him. I thought I missed the rut, maybe not........

    Have pictures of this guy since 2017. No pictures in 2018, but he was in his prime in 2019. The picture of him in the snow were taken on the day I should have killed him with a bow. I had planned on working a half a day and being in the stand by noon, but it didn't work out. He was 15 yards from my stand a little after 4:30.

    Only had a few pictures of him this year. My son saw him a half mile away during bow season. I ended up shooting him 2 miles from where my cameras are during rifle season this year. Made a great shot, but used the wrong bullet. Shot a doe a week later and found out I wasn't getting good expansion.

    A decent 8 and a to-do 10. The 10 looks like maybe someone took a shot at him and missed the vitals and only grazed it. Hopefully that's not the case because I don't want anyone hunting him. I think he has potential for the next season.
