I shot a 7 point yesterday. He was with does and was doing some chasing. It is always the best in Claiborne county in December.
People after big horns are compensating for small horns.

I have two places to hunt, one is in bradley county and one is in hamilton county. The bradley county place has a lot of rubs and not a whole lot of scrapes, but the ones that are there are big (3-4 ft around). I hunted yesterday morning on the ground by a bedding area, I had 8 does walk by me at 10 feet. I was down wind and they looked at me and just kept on rollin. Not a buck in site. About two weeks ago I started getting mid day pick of several shooter bucks, but that has gone away. Not sure what that means, but when you have that many does come by and not a buck in the group, I couldnt believe it. On the other hand Hamilton county area, the deer sign was non existent. But about two weeks ago I started getting new bucks and mid day picks of them. That has now went away there also. Tonight my wife and I went to hamilton county to ease the hunting pressure from the bradley county area and saw a small buck more like nagging then chasing, but he was running here a little bit. Last year Hamilton county was hot the second week of november. Bucks were chasing hard, but this year there is hardly any movement at all.

The 10 pt i shot yesterday in loudon county was in full rut.. He was moving along a ridge with his nose to the wind looking for a doe that had passed a few min before. His tarsal glands were dripping

So it sounds like southern east tn it is on, and in northern east tn it isn't? Is that a reasonable conclusion to draw.
