Except for coffee and some sammich's around noon-ish, we were in stands most of the daylight hours. No sightings at all.
All of our turnips (we only have 3 small 1/2 A plots on 120 acres) have been chewed down to nothing. Where we were getting 50-60 pics a week per plot, we're down to a scant few at night of a wandering doe/fawn. With the drought, we got the turnips in late and they grew short and very few bulbs. With the food gone, we're sure the does left for the next food sources and we've had no activity in a week.
Can't tell you what the status of the rut is on our property because with the does and fawns mostly gone, so are the bucks.
Too bad, we had such high hopes in October.
