Haven't seen much this year. 6 doe so far. Have a 6 pt. buck on trail camera. Last year I took a 7pt in the same spot opening morn. A doe with a spotted fawn, and another with her yearling along in tow. Got those pics in the last 2 weeks. I check my camera weekly.
  I was up there yesterday mowing the trails in so I don't end up with wet feet from the tall grass. The rest of the fields haven't been hayed this year. The guy is behind and I'm hoping he gets it done soon. Can't see the turkeys walking across the fields and the season is right around the corner. Hope to put the wife on a tom this fall.
  I too decided the state can keep their doe this year. I can get one with my bow or muzzleloader during the season.

Reeper,
   All I can tell you is about a 5 yr old Moultrie. I'd have to run up in the woods to find out the model. lol I bought it then for about $120.
 Get this, about 4 yrs ago I hung it up on neighboring land which was posted and I would sneak in. I mounted it right on a tree at the bend of a woods road. Sat there for a week and all I got was the moving branches from the wind. Took it down and low and behold, the next day the tree in front of it got all scrapped up. Go figure!

Hey Reeper....Just like you yeppers.... it's been tough going...head ache is gone but I'm still a tad stiff...not sure if it's all the mowing or climb stand to shoot the bow...I only carry 3 arrows ...forces me to concentrate....that's a lot of ladder climbing...LOL
Decisions ...decisions...We closed on the new land Mon...no stands and it's been a hive of trespassers for years...then it has been high winds and rain since I left camp so I haven't been back to finish up there....I went in to put up one last tow rope...and bumped 2 buck and a doe....bedded in between 2 different plots...for the life of me I swear that doe was in heat!....the bucks didn't bolt and she was bedded away from them...I knelt down and stayed still...she walked past at 20yrds and her tail was down and wagging like terriers tail waiting for a treat...the buck just milled around infront of me...one was a low ride rack ..I haven't seen ..nice sized...she continued past them then they trotted off through the woods....
 Mr B. left for work this morning...said there's cash on the counter...go get your life time license...I feel like it's tempting fate...burns me I already got my tags for this year...hhhmmm

Stormshooter, if I moved my cam and a rub was there the next time I went out I would be heart broken!! Did you have permission to go on the land? Maybe its mother nature teaching you lesson if you didn't[;)] 
 
 
Msbadger,
haha, I had a feeling you would be feeling it a few days later if you did the same day. I hear ya about the damn rain, its not like we have had enough of it this year[8|] I am hoping it holds off enough tonight so I can get out there! Do you plan on putting any stands on the new property? Hopefully it will be worth the wait! I hear alot of people are taking advantage of the lifetime licence before the price goes up. It does suck you purchased tags already though!
 
 
Best of luck to everyone this season!

Reeper,
  No, I didn't have permission to be there. It was only posted on the front but still. I'd use my GPS in the dark to get to my fav tree that I'd clamp my tree seat on. Plus sitting there in camo made me harder to see.
  Yes, it was a bummer to see the scrub marks the next day.
