All my bucks that I had been watching disappeared too. Wonder where they went?

probably a number of things....

change in food source

hunting pressure (bucks that size draw a CROWD...i dont care HOW posted a place is...i can almost guarentee that its being hunted without your knowledge....ive watched people get dropped off so they can sneak into areas...

spotting pressure...i see it EVERY year...deer get SICK of being spotted, guys driving into the fields for a better view, getting out with handheld spotlights etc etc....deer aint dumb...

and probably more factors

could been poached...but they could also still be there and go unnoticed...

This happens every year. Arguably the favorite food of bone heads this time of year are acorns. I bet that if you find an oak grove near your area and you set up a trail cam, you will see your quartet chowing away under the moonlight on acorns.
