Gafrage ... nice shot, great story! Well done!!

Hopefully this coming weekend won't be a total washout; I have Monday off to hunt as well. I'm hoping the cold front pulling away will have Mr. & Mrs. Whitetail on their feet!!

Last chance with a bow this early season. Way to make it happen Gafrage!!
One day my ship will come in!! My luck, I'll be at the airport.

They say the rut is on , but I havnt seen anything but a small yearling a half hour before dark last night , I wonder if they are locked down. Last weekend I saw bucks on does and bucks cruising maybe that was the rut, because nothing happening lately

All of the big boys and bucks are cruising early in the morning, till around 11, or they find a doe to hang out with.

Doesn't pay to hunt the evenings unless you're set up on trails that does use regularly and hope that one is in heat and a buck is following her.

100% of my daylight photos of bucks are from 6:30 am to 10:30am, with it peaking from 6:30 to 7:30am.
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.

Gafrage - interesting info about the buck movement. I dont have cameras, but the activity Ive seen on stand is consistent with your report about morning movement. Cant wait for gun season. This is the closest thing I have to that "Christmas morning" feeling as an adult!
