Run cameras on 2 weeks and give it a break for that period of time. Pattern the deer and change accordingly

I have similar experience from years of (15)alone here in Tn....and i dont see alot of bucks during bow season, esp. mature ones. What i do is wait for weather changes, rain coming, going cold fronts etc. and hope for the best Only once or twice during each of the last 5 years have i had a great opportunity on a good shooter buck and last year it was on Oct. 15th. who knows may happen yet but it usually is the month of Nov. for me before i get to seeing them with regularity and that is because of the rut.

Cec, the deer I'm seeing in our neck of the woods are still hitting fields pretty hard. My yard seems to be the only place around with ample acorns. They are few and far between most places I've seen around here and in Scott County.

Maybe your acorns have dropped and you just don't have many and the deer have moved to a better food source.

Dang I guess I have had a good year so far, not been on as many hunts as you but seen deer almost every time and killed one so far, got busted a few times too which I am real good at lol

Hope the deer start moving for you soon. Sorry to hear it's been slow, best of luck.

Glad im not the only one. I have 8 hunts in and not saw the first deer. I hunt the wind and have tons of trail pics of deer using the area. The frustration is building.
