In Westchester, with the moon pretty bright the first two weekends, could have done a lot of night feeding and slept most of the day. I've seen a few nice bucks, but they're in heavy cover. With the new moon, and maybe a little whiff of scent, it could start to draw them out. Right now, rattling and grunting's not bringing em out. And, coupled with the high winds we've had, they're all a little skittish. This weekend will be the first for me with the tinks, and some bleating. Good luck to all

I'd like to know if anything is chasing yet but I can't see any deer to tell whether or not that is the case.
I'm in the same county as you. Acorns were done falling about Oct 1st. Really screwed on one of my spots. Had a camera on a ridge that was getting action all Sept. Soon as Oct hit I didn't get any more pics from it except me when I went to check it.

I'm seeing deer on one farm I hunt but even there sightings are down. No scrapes yet and only rub I have found I watched the buck make it.
