Loc: Tipton County

I had a plotwatcher cam out in a food plot in tipton county for 2 weeks that I finally got to check. It records everything all day, but only during daylight hours. It takes a picture every 5 seconds of the entire day, so I see all daylight movement through there. Its consistent with what many of us have been seeing in fayette county, good activity earlier, then like a lightswitch, nothing for days.

11/20 430PM young buck chasing does around the plot
11/21 5PM does eating right before dusk
11/22 730AM does eating, young buck joins and makes a scrape
11/23 715AM young buck checks scrape, nothing else all day
11/24 no activity
11/25 440PM does eating
11/26 - 11/29 no activity at all
11/30 5PM couple of does eating
12/1 and 12/2 no activity

My deer sightings have picked up over the last 2 weeks which is good but its mostly young bucks. Like everoyne else young bucks pestering does and seeing a few groups of does. Did see a group of 8 does Saturday morning but I'm guesing they were jumped as they seemed to be on a mission to get to a new bedding area. All in SE fayette county.
