Ok, got my doe this weekend! Actually shot her at 7 am Friday morning, the day after my birthday but I'm still considering her a birthday present! She was the largest of 5 does that walked out into a food plot of rye grass and rape. I'm like you jacannon63, I'll probaby saving the rest of days for the rut in January too!
Field notes I observed this weekend through on stand sightings and camera pics shows no signs of the rut yet in the northern part of Conecuh county. All the does seen or photographed were in groups or with their fawns. Photos of bucks were all at night with one shown leaving the property at 4:44 am to go back to his pine bedding area on the ajacent property. If all goes well he'll be mine come the January rut! So far no scrapes or rubs on known trails. Several bucks have been photgraphed so we know they are there for the food plots at night. Can't wait to see them chasing does next month!
