North Williamson I hunted Thursday all day and saw bucks up to 3 years old. I started out in a stand up on top at a bedding area but after first light the wind was just too strong there. At about 6:30 or 7am I made a dreaded move; I was not in the right place and I knew it. I moved down onto a shelf about 500 yards from my previous location to get on the leeward side of the wind. I bumped what I thought was the buck I was hunting with a doe. The doe went east, he went west and I assumed he was with her so I grunted and then started setting up. I saw him coming back about 5 minutes later so I quickly pulled my bow up, but it turned out to be a younger buck than I was wanting to shoot. He eventually turned around and went back down the ridge. I watched him make several scrapes at a field edge and I rattled to see his reaction. He didn't do much but another buck came down and challenged him. They both postured for a little while and I thought they would fight but to my surprise they both settled down and started grooming each other on the neck. It was very bizarre; I've never seen anything like it. I just assumed they already knew each other from the summer months. I grunted a few times and the other buck a 10 responded and came right to me. I got some great video of him rubbing and scraping. That 10 was super aggressive and responded well. Every buck I observed had nearly white tarsals, so I think for us they will be seeking and scraping. We may see some chasing but I think we are still out a week or so but only time will tell.

Can't wait to see what everyone else is seeing after this weekend.


Awesome report and great hunt! Thank you for sharing.

Yesterday 11/9 in Rutherford County. I had a 4 pt running a doe. her mouth was open and her tongue was hanging out.

late that day I had a doe cross out in front of me and a spike was tailing her, but not running.

Today I screwed the hunt up, so I saw nothing.
