Just wondering how it's going for everyone so far. I saw 1 doe this afternoon and that was it all day. Acorns are falling and the camera tells me they're around but apparently in hiding.

Had 4 deer bust me just as I got to my spot,sat down sweeting from the 45 min walk so left my hat, my face mask off and gloves to cool down looked to my right and there they where,an hour later had a nice long beard at 15 yards was just ready to take the shot and spotted a 6 pointer at about 80 yds ,he also had a doe with him.after watching them feed for a half hr the doe wandered off the buck bedded down with his head and most of his body behind a big maple.Well after 2hrs said I was going to try to make something happen so I closed the distance to 35 yds when I saw the doe stand but she was looking the other way soon the buck got up they both feed for another half hour within 35 yds then they worked there way down the ridge just never presented a good shot with the brush so the lived to give me some excitement next the next time around.so all and all had a good morning

Nice deer and nice plot. What do you have growing in your plot?

From: Rob in VT

I have several plots. I like to use oats, brassica, winter peas, and sometimes wheat for my annual plots. I usually mix up a combination of seed or sometimes stick with one.

Tagged a doe this morning. It was only the 2nd deer I've seen from the stand after 9 trips out. Not a monster but I'm happy to get some venison.

I have yet to see a deer. I smelled one last week but he/she stayed just out of sight. I got busted on Saturday when the deer smelled me I assume. They blew again just out of sight.

It was a slow season for me. I did start seeing some deer in the last week but none in range. Not sure why. For the first 3 weeks I wasn't even getting trail cam pics. It picked up this week. Yesterday morning I had a 4 pointer walk right under a ladder stand but I was sitting 75 yards away in the wrong stand. Hopefully he will be around for my son during rifle season. Good luck everyone.
