Last weekend Macon town area absolutely no chasing. Matter of fact, the does and yearlings/fawns were herded up. I set my boys up at an ambush point and then did a big loop and started pushing through everything I could find. Busted up 3 separate groups, one of 10 or 12, one of 8 or 9, another of 5. They lined out for the ambush point but never slowed down. My boys said they got a good view but NO bucks.

What I did find was scrapes. I mean, everywhere. 5 were over 4 feet across, dozens in the 2 feet size and the 12 inch to 18 inch ones were everywhere, seen 30 or 40 of them. All of this AFTER opening day.

What does that mean?

Hunted this morning. Watched a 6 point sucking up acorns like a vacuum cleaner for thirty minutes. Only deer I saw. Most of our scrapes are filled with leaves and have been for a couple weeks. Not sure what to make of it all.

some folks think they are locked down. Since we aren't even seeing does, maybe the case? I have no idea.

A friend of mine had a small 8 pt run into the side of his truck last night in Somerville. I saw a 2.5 yo 8 pt chasing last weekend in Fayette.
