Real good way to spread CWD around! It should be illegal to use deer urine, especially since they can make artificial urine.

[QUOTE=Oldtimr;4165984]Real good way to spread CWD around! It should be illegal to use deer urine, especially since they can make artificial urine.[/QUOT So I guess the Expert's at the PGC think otherwise about spreading CWD.

the PGC's vetrenarian has been consistant in saying deer urine from deer farms should not be allowed to be used, and has said it for several years.

I am not sure about when the rut actually starts.. But, here the heaviest normally is mid November.. Yesterday while trying some luck at bow hunting there was 2 cases of tracks showing some sort of commotion going. There was places from 2 different days on an old road where a couple of deer had it out maybe.. I was not sure what I was looking at though as I never saw these before.. It looked as though 2 feet were sliding together in the mud with several more deer tracks around it.. In one set it looked as though a leg had been on the ground. No deer hair but I am think the bucks maybe doing a pre rut thing and trying to drive each other away?? Just not sure on it..

It is not unusual for buck to have pushing matches this time of year, checking out the strength of the competition and preparing for the real thing later on.

That is what I am thinking is going on is a pre rut type of thing.. That or perhaps a little early breeding as we have earl fawns and late fawns here and I am sure most every state does..
