What we seeing out there?

Postby Lot to Learn » Thu Oct 16, 2008 1:20 pm

if it wasn't for a doe with a fawn in tow I would not have seen anything so far. All crops still in where I am hunting so I am sure that has something to do with it. And the ground is still wet so will probably be another week at least.  I have seen a lot of turkeys. So I think I am going to start turkey hunting and see if the deer show up. I will quit whining. How is everyone else doing?

Real Slow, every thing seems to go wrong: wind, dumb hunters, combines, horses, etc

I am with you on the temps. It was really cool one day last week and I decided to head out for an afternoon hunt. By the time I got there it had warmed up and I spent the day fighting misquotes.  With all that movement I am lucky I saw a squirrel. Good luck this weekend, I plan on being out also.

I've been seeing groups of young bucks that are seeking estrus doe's. I also saw a doe marking a scrape, but she was too far away to shoot.
