Default Young bucks on the prowl

Went out tonight, had a nice 6 point come in grunting with his nose to the ground, gave him a few grunts and he came unglued, making scrapes and tearing up any tree around him. Passed him up at 15yrds. Makes you wonder if things are a little earlier than the norm.

I,m starting to see more deer again . Slode down for a week or so .

The ones I,ve seen were actualy browsing with or near the doe,s .

Nothing is any earlier or later. It just depends on the luck and timing ofwhat you see.
Every year someone sees early "rutting" behavior while the next guy sees nothhing. Heck one can see both in the same night sometimes. One buck comes by and be in the mood. The next one comes by ignoring everything.

Opening day of southern bow i shot a 6 pointer. I first heard him grunting so i grunted back. 4 does and 2 bucks came in. A spike was chasing a doe with his nose right under her tail. I finally got the 6 by grunting againg and him coming into range.
