I have a salt lick and a feeder where one of my cameras are set up and it has been 17 days since I've seen my group of five 8 pointers. Have they gone elsewhere or split up? My feeder has been out of corn for two weeks just filled it up today hoping they come back! Any advice or knowledge?

My salt pics this week are way down. They usually hit the salt hard til September. Our crazy, cool summer may have them off schedule this year.

They easily could have moved to a new location.

What you are seeing is normal Boone 58. Outside of big-time farm country, bucks don't have a daily circuit; they have a circuit that takes a week or two to make. That's why, on camera, you will see a big group of bucks show up all on one day, and then nothing for a week or two.

BSK: Can you offer guidance regarding "big-time farm country." How do you qualify this criteria (just generally speaking)? What might be the ratio of tillable ground?

I don't yet know what to make of it but bachelor groups on my farm (even individual bucks) appear largely to stick around throughout the year and from year to year. To be clear I'm not complaining one bit, but have been reading up on the value of habitat diversity in this regard and considering what I can do to encourage this behavior

They seem for the most part, regular homebodies.
