I thought I'd take the time to let everyone know how the hunting has been around my area. I've been seeing tons of pre-rut action, rubbing, seeking, and scrapeing by both buck's and doe's. I had a small buck checking a mock scrape with in minutes after I set my scent the other morning. Then I was totally trashed by a young doe, she gave me a perfect 20 yard broadside shot, then ducked my arrow. The doe was small, but very quick, she dodged so low to miss the arrow, that the broadhead barely cut into the back side of her opposing shoulder blade. My shot was a little high anyway, but that just showed me how quick those young deer can re-act to a bow shot. I'm heading to the Tioga property tonight with my hunting buddy, maybe one of us will bag a doe, or a mature buck. I'll be sure to let you all know if I see any deer. [;)]
