Yesterday afternoon I had a group of 4 (momma, two young doe, and a button)come in. They were running around in the woods chasing each other. I thought they were playing at first but then I realized that the mother was trying to get rid of the youngsters. She was continually checking their hind-sides and would chase them away from her when they would try to get close. With that said, I am assuming that either the momma or the young ones are about to come into estrous. However this is a total guess and could be way off

Saw several smaller bucks chasing does around this past weekend in SE Fayette county.My deer sightings have picked up a good bit lately but all bucks have been 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 years old. Hopefully some of the big boys will step up to the plate soon.

I'm fortunate that I live in Fayette County and get to witness deer activity closeup in my backyard, so to speak, even at night. The last 5 days I've seen at least 6 shooter bucks in my backyard foodplot. All seem to be either tending or pestering does. They did stop to eat occasionally when the does were feeding also. One large buck actually chased 17 deer out of the food plot, and it appeared it was just out of meanness, as he didn't seem to be particularly interested in any one doe. I have floodlights on the plot, and its rare to see a shooter in the plot. So something has changed to see so many in a short time-frame. I actually saw 3 different shooters last night in a 2 hr stretch.

I've hunted everyday since opening day of gun season . On the 19th I had 6 bucks in the field. All were small racks. Except one. He was only 2.5 yr old. The oldest was keeping the smaller ones away from the does. But there necks weren't swallin. Then since then I have only seen does. I don't think they have started here. That warm front messed them up .

Literally at night after legal shooting hours? What time? Reason I ask is my trail cams are picking some "shooters" up at night, but not so much during the daylight. Some, but nothing like at night. Thanks for the clarification.

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.
