I am with you, my shot on my buck this year, I caught a branch but I got lucky, it went to the left and hit his the main artery in his ass. bleed out real quick.
Like you, for the last week and a half, I have only seen a couple of does and a crap load of bucks. (not one with a doe)
I was with my buddy and the taxidermist this morning and they are saying some areas are hot and others are not (With breeding).
I got a feeling that with the weather and all the corn, alot of the rutting and inital breeding has gone on at night and in the corn fields.
I got my buck green scored today, grosses 148" nets 143" (not to shabby for an eight pointer. Even better news, The farmer on our farm say there is a bigger 12 or 14 pointer out there he kicked up with the combine. I cant wait to see him in range.
Good luck all.
