I start vacation this weekend. Have not been up a tree with bow in hand yet, but have been in the SE Indiana woods every week since Labor Day.
It is dry here right now. We've had one significant rainfall (and it was a good one) in the past month.
Crops are coming down fast...with the majority already out of the fields.
The mast crop is spotty. A few oaks hit....but you will have to find them.
Seeing fewer rubs than normal so far....but lots of scrape activity. We have several trail cams on scrapes. Several bucks hitting each scrape...but mostly at night.
Be prepared for warmer then normal temps. Extended forecast looks pretty warm all the way up to firearm season.
Best of luck! Paul
I hope it takes off before the gun opener gets here. Good luck when you come out Grant!
