I hunted in Fayette County just past Oakland this am & saw no deer.
I have been shut out on my last few hunts actually. I would have thought they would be on the move with slightly colder temps & after heavy rain.

My buck sightings in the backyard have decreased dramatically in the past 7-10 days. Could be weather related, might be at a lull or mid-point in the rut, or might be related to decrease in doe sightings. The doe sightings have decreased as well and the does are far more skittish than they were prior to Thanksgiving. I'd suspect that's a result of increases in hunting pressure the last couple of weeks. I'll be giving it another shot this weekend.

None of this sounds good. Is it possible the rut came and went?

I'll be headed out Saturday AM and will report back.
