I agree hoppies - gone are the days I will hunt in this wet stuff! I am still seeing bucks running together right now and still on feeding patterns.... hopefully soon - I am getting quite a few pictures in my food plots of sparring going on!

I'm starting to see the bucks split up. Was scouting a little Thursday and saw several fresh rubs. Haven't seen any scrapes yet. I'm not seeing enough action yet to make me sit out in the cold rain either. If we don't get a break soon, I might sit in a groundblind.

Not seeing any chasing. Been watching a doe for the last half hour or so. Started getting a few pics of different bucks at night. You can tell their mood is starting to change. Trying a little rattling. Never had much luck but you never know.

I saw quite a few deer on way to Morgantown and coming back home. All were feeding and I saw no roadkills - doesn’t look to me like they are chasing just quite yet.

I saw 4 coming back from my cabin on the road. Which btw is more than the does hunters killed this weekend around me. I heard 3 shots while hunting in 2 counties.

In southern Kanawha County yesterday there was a decent buck with a doe right beside the road. He was grunting like crazy. I got the impression that it was his doe. His neck was huge. A guy I was with took a picture of the buck and then I took a picture of the screen of his phone. I will try to post the pic of the buck.

I’m not even seeing deer , I’ve been out every morning this week and have saw a total of 2 deer. Have 3 cameras set with no deer on them. Have a backyard feeder ( off limits for hunting) and a doe/ fawn team comes every other day. 2 weeks ago there were 11 deer coming to feeder and cameras were picking up 8 different bucks . Toughest season I ever had.

Still seeing deer pretty much on their feeding pattern. Still seeing bucks in groups - little bit of sparring going on. Have not been seeing hardly any deer hit on the roads around here either - I think Berkeley county is running a tad behind.

saw a nice buck in Jefferson county yesterday. Not much in the mtn. Heading there tomorrow to get after them.
