2 days ago a button buck walked up 10 feet behind me. I didnt move a muscle for a half hour. It just stayed there eating and looking at me. Finally the not moving started hurtin my muscles lol. I had to move. The deer just looked at me. Then ran 20 feet and started rubbing its forehead on a tree. And then walked off. and YESTERDAY I had a nice 8 pointer walk about 50 yards in front of me. Too small to shoot though. Probably scored around 110. Im still lookin for the big one I saw 3 days ago. He walked out of a big thicket and walked straight down a rub/scrape line thats about 200 yards long. I was sitting in the middle of it. 10-12 pointer, 140 class. He was walking right to me! At 20 yards a squirrel started running in the dry leaves and that buck looked up and snorted and ran the other way. UGH MFING SQUIRREL. I had a bush in the way or else I woulda let an arrow fly. Oh well. The past 3 trips have brought me 3 bucks and a doe. So Ill be seeing more I hope. Im taking a camcorder with me today.

Well I decided to scout the land I'm on a little bit more and I brought my bow with me. I saw a doe and a spike eating in a corn field and I tried to stalk up on them. I got within 50 yards and they saw me.

Good job Centauri. Isn't the rut up there about peaking by now? I'm hunting down by Springfield where the 5 magic days are Nov. 13-17.

Yes the rut is just starting to peak. I noticed 3 rubs that were made last night so there are more bucks than the one I shot in there.

It was frozen and in storage at the processor until my trip is complete. I'd feel stupid going in there and asking to measure it.
