Cant figure out what is going on with the phase?

Postby jard » Tue Nov 21, 2017 2:06 pm

I hunt just north of Lewisburg on the Maury Marshall line. 2 weeks ago saw 2 different shooter 8 points that I couldn't get a shot because of the brush. Both of them just ran up to the edge of different fields and winded does and then walked back exactly where they came from (Im assuming the does weren't ready). Activity has been real good until last Friday. Sightings went way down and even to this morning, was seeing 5-6 deer a trip and now its like 1-2 maybe does just moseying along. Today 2 different stands saw small bucks chasing does all over again, like crazy running them everywhere. But none of the shooters are anywhere to be found. I was in a spot that I always see a ton of deer, this morning, 1 4 pt ran a doe across the small field and was gone. Weird so far. I'll be out everyday for the next 3-4 days, hope the big boys are locked down. BTW, I hunt almost all hardwoods. its a 100 acres of thick woods with 3 fields that are 1 acre each. I am in the woods about 30 yards from the fields where I can still shoot them but am in the hardwoods.

We hunt in the Belfast area and are seeing pretty much the same thing with the Marshall county deer. We are seeing lots of young bucks chasing but no bruisers to speak of. Although, this one did slip up last Sunday.
