I should be more specific, it was taken off this morning. A few deer, mainly doe were bedded down in it and ran off. Do deer go to a freshly picked field?

There is a ton of fresh pickings on the ground. I would bet some deer will be using that field. Good luck

I know they do around here. See a bunch of them in the newly cut fields on the way home every evening...

Well, I did make it out. In the stand from 3-6 and NOTHING. I can't figure it out. The doe are still running together, and I haven't seen a big buck yet this season. They are there, I'm findingHUGE tracks, butI haven't seen a big deer yet. Oldest buck I've seen has been a year and a half. Must be the weather, and the night time movement. Wednesday is supposed to get cold here in OH. Maybe that will snap'em out of it.
