Default I have a question.

I am in western PA and I have seen some bucks starting to chase the does. Also I noticed there are deer being hit all over the highway. Today is the 25th and I wont be able to go out and hunt again until Saturday the 28th, so my question is..Since I am seeing some chasing do you think it would be smart to put out some doe in estrus lure around my stand on Saturday or should I wait for another week or so? I know the bucks are ready, but i know its a little early for the does to be ready. I am really trying to get this big ten that I keep seeing only at dark. I don't want to make things seem.. I don't know "un-natural" I guess is the word im looking for and I don't want to scare anything off. let me know what you guys think. thanks!

If you are looking for strictly a buck, then who cares if the does are ready, as long as the boys are ready?! Give it a whirl, it won't hurt anything and maybe just what a passing buck needs to passs close enough to you for a shot.

It appears the bucks are looking for just that.

Yep, use the estrus...If the bucks are chasing there is a good chance that some of the does are already in...
