In many locations, deer stop using salt licks once the weather cools.

I usually take my cams off of salt licks and move them to food sources in early September. Once the first natural scrapes begin to appear (usually around the first week of October), I move the majority of my cameras to natural and mock scrapes.

All of my cameras are over fields right now. The deer have been hammering our fields. The exclusion cages have 5" more inside the cages than out where the deer are eating. In one particular field, I bet there were over 10 different bucks last week alone. And all the other cams had a number of bucks on them s well. Only 1 out of 6 cameras didnt have bucks and some does on them - that was the worst field growing. I pull them off the salt around mid-September and move them to these fields. Then around mid-late October, I place them over the real and mock scrapes (whenever they really start making them). I saw over 15 scrapes and one nice rub, but thats just from that little cool snap we had and you dont need to read too much into it now. Right now, its the fields for us. It is surprising to me with all of the acorns falling, but as long as I'm getting pictures, I dont mind \:\) .

That's very interesting JCDEERMAN. I had my cameras over food plots all September and wasn't getting much. Our food plots don't show much browse pressure at all, even though they are 8-10 inches high.

We quit getting buck pics at our salt but were still getting several doe pics. We moved our cameras to food plots and travel areas. I will see this weekend if they are getting any use.

I've only had my camera out (until recently) behind my house. Deer just disappeared. I moved my camera to my little food plot and BINGO. They are hitting it hard. I was thinking it wasnt growing but it is, they are just hammering it right now.

I think I've talked to you about this before. The time period between pulling cameras off of salt around the first week or 2 of September until when scrape activity starts picking up in mid-late October is, imo, is the toughest time to get pictures of older deer. Acorns start dropping, bucks are shifting ranges,...everything is changing. Do you have exclusion cages up? When looking at our fields, they dont look browsed and I just thought we needed rain. Then we went to a field with a cage, and man oh man. I wish I had a picture of the browse pressure on the field growth

We had all of our fields limed back on Easter weekend. Years we do this, the deer are on clock work with the fields. I dont hunt in fields but do hunt "around" fields 50-200 yards in the evenings. I think the limed fields in combination with all of our 3rd year growth of select cuts are really starting to pay off.

I will try to post a few pics of the bucks here after a while this evening....

Nothing spectacular, but they are tearing up our fields. They look like they arent growing very well, but it is from the deer hammering them.

Always interesting the see the different feeding patterns of deer in different locations. If your exclusion cages show heavy browse pressure, then that is what is going on. My exclusion cages show very little browse pressure currently, but that will change as the natural forage on my place is frozen back. I strongly suspect the high volume of natural forage growing in our many recent timber cuts is taking a tremendous amount of pressure off our plots. For now...

AWESOME pictures JCDEERMAN! Yes, your food plots look much more heavily browsed than mine.

One thing I noticed last year (when we had an decent acorn crop) and have also noticed this year, is that the deer are feeding down between the blades of cereals grains and picking out the clovers. last year, we had to top-seed clover back into the plots in late October because the deer had wiped them out. I wonder if the available acorns are meeting the deer's carbohydrate needs, hence they are passing up the cereal grains and concentrating on the protein content of the clovers?

You'd be surprised. The deer in that particular plot are feeding on BF oats. We have clover in a few fields but they aren't touching it nearly as much as the oats. That's what I find quite odd. I have hundreds of pics like these in all 7 fields and there has been a TON of sparring going on. Though I hunted all weekend over the acorns and didn't see a deer. When the weekend before, I saw 12 on 2 hunts chowing down on acorns. Whatever the case may be, I just hope November brings the does to these fields and ill be off of them a ways. EVERY year and the following 2 years we lime, this is what happens. We just need to stay consistent at it. Money is usually the biggest obstacle \:\(
