Young bucks are cold-trailing does in Hardeman but no pestering/chasing...they seem to simply be more curious than anything. Although they've been scraping for several weeks, this weekend I found the first big rub of the year (which is a little wierd).

We still got a good little while in my area before anything heats up.

My farm in weakley county, week ago I saw a small 8 pter checking every doe big or small that came to feed on acorns were I was hunting.

Last saturday, I checked the one spot that I usually hunt opening day of muzzle loader and found a scrap line bout a 100 yards long that had I would say 10 to 12 scraps down that trail.

Out at the edge of the beanfield there were numerous scrapes also, finally saw the larger rubs in there useual place also. I haven't seen any chasing tho.

Looks like it could be interesting this weekend.

This evening on stand I saw a spike chasing a doe around 5:30 pm

At dark when I was leaving the woods a buck cruised within 15 yards of me. It didn't act alarmed which is very unusual.

Morgan and Fentress. Seen a few rubs, one half hearted attempt at a scrape. Basically not much at all.

I used it in mcminn county this morning and killed a small buck that came to it. My buddy used it this evening and as his foot hit the ground a doe ran right up to it and ran past and two mature bucks came running behind her stopped to smell the estrous he couldnt get a arrow nocked by the time they got their attention on the doe again.

I cud understand 2 young bucks chasing a doe together this early but I dont understand why 2 wallhangers would chase one this early?
