Well guys im finally starting to see more deer chasing during legal hunting hours and not on my way to the woods or on the way home. Just really started to pick up this week. Bad thing is theyre running like crazy and i cant seem to get them to stop. Had 2 decent bucks chasing a doe this evening and i threw everything in my arsenal at them grunts and the can. They just kept runnin at full blast. But still glad theyre up on their hoovesand not laying low. The weather has gotten cooler but not for long supposed to be in the 60 for gun season this weekend.

Sat., Sun., and Mon., I saw a ton of deer at all times of the day. Saw at least 1 P&Y buck on every sit on each of those three days. Even the bucks by themselves paid absolutely no attention to any kind of calls. I had my chances every one of those days, I just couldn't seal the deal.
