Rockridge has 12 deer so far. The last one was shot with a bow ..a 7 point that weighed 169

I've been seeing a few deer but they have not been moving. If ya want a deer your going to have to work for it..inside dense bayheads , prayerand where there are lot's of sign.

Yea you are right about that...I usually setup on a deer trail that I seen several deer cross from bayhead to bayhead last year, this year I have only seen 4, although I have seen some good sign on the edge of the bayheads I beleive they are pretty much stayin in the bayheads durin the day due to it bein warm, so I plan to go inside the bayheads and see if I can find more sign and a good place to setup. Hopefully I will get an oppritunity or two.

I have my stand inside a bayhead now that's being used twice a day...I only found one tree barely big enough for a stand..I plan to sit all day in it Mon. Usually with the bucks you get one opportunity ..I hope I don't blow it.

Sometimes it can be hard findin good trees in the bayheads, I'm hopin I can find 1 or 2, the bayhead I plan goin in I have never been inside before, but have seen quite a bit of deer come outta there so I'm about certain they are usin it for a beddin area. I will be out there monday and the rest of this upcomin week, I'm excited about some good rain tied with a cold front comin in tuesday just might be enough to get them bucks movin good.

I'm stumped...I have sat mon.-thurs. this week, only seein 3 turkeys and 1 doe. Its like someone hit a light switch OFF. Only found 2 trees freshly rubbed between 4 different areas all week, went into several bayheads found hardly no fresh sign. Even the hogs aint movin much now. The best sign I seen was near the North fence, and judgin by the size of trees rubbed down it was a button buck. It seems almost like the deer aint goin into rut. The past 3 days 0 deer checked out of 471 gate. The best news of this week is findin out that its gonna stay cool for a while. C'MON DEER PLEASE MOVE, SHOW ME SOME GOOD SIGN!!!

I went out today hoping the weather would help...nada. I did see lots of fresh tracks and paths in the bay heads...but no deer. I dis find lots of ticks...yuck, I got some permathin on the way home.
I'll try again tomorrow, I'm not going this weekend to avoid the crowds. The ranger said today was busy, over 100 through the 471 gate by sunrise.

While I was driving on 54 I saw a huge buck chasing a doe across a pasture today. I know it's not green swamp but it's near by. I'm convincing myself that this a good sign.
