My deer sightings have slowed a lot over the last few weeks. I can only assume by the lack of dead deer down post I'm not the only one. All the acorns I had located earlier in the season have fallen and been gobbled up. Checked a few other possible spots over the weekend same deal not many acorns. With limited time I haven't and won't be able to scout again till not this but next weekend. So it looks as though for the next week or so I will just be logging hours in the stand in hopes of catching one passing by.

Well you guys both saw bucks tonight so that is good. Headed back out this morning figure maybe something will happen this morning since it would be very inconvenient for me to get one. With my truck in the shop I'm stuck driving the family minivan, sure I would get some looks with one strapped to the roof.

i went 10 sits w/out seeing a tail, then thursday evening i whacked a medium sized doe. the shot was low, but right behind the front legs.  had a real nice blood trail coming out of both sides of the deer.  followed the deer for a LONG ways until it went to a cut green field.  lost the blood there.  spent another hour looking with no results.  it poured thursday night.  went back first thing friday morning and searched the area for another two hours.  no dice.  she lost A LOT of blood...i kept thinking i'd bump into her, but it didn't happen.

scouted a new area yesterday mid-day.  didn't see ANY fresh buck sign.  sign in general was tough to find w/ all the fresh leaves...

got a few bucks on camera in a new area.  sat there last night and had one sneak through 60+ yards out around 6:05. 

MA archery opener tomorrow.  got the day off.  hope to make up for thursday!!!!!!

good luck...think the action is about to really start heating up!

I have been seeing a ton of deer. More deer than I have ever before...not sure if it is because the acorns are starting to dry up or what.

Now bucks on the other hand....I can't seem to see anything but a spike. In person or on camera..

I am counting on this colder week coming off a full moon to start the ball rolling. 2 drippers will go in this week.

Good luck to all, like deerme said....its about to heat up!!!!

Ha Great pic!  Been a little slow for me, haven't been able to get out as much as I would like the last two weeks either.  Hopefully the cooler temps and shorter days get things going.
