Yes indeed. I pulled my cards once so far in September, and only one of the 6 shooter bucks showed up. I have seen the same thing the last 3 years (as long as I have been maintaining game cameras). Looks awesome in August, and then in September the bucks disappear.

I plan to pull the cards tomorrow (last time before bow season kicks off on the 29th), so I will update you on what I see in those photos and videos.

For the last month, there are few every weekend. Our 100 lb feeder which has been empty in a week all year, was half full. It's not just the bucks but the does too. Kinda weird actually. And they started cutting corn three weeks ago.

Pulled the cards today. Lots of does, best 2 buck showed up at midnight. A few young bucks showed up in shooting light. No bucks showed up in the afternoon over 11 days.

Looks like until the rut starts, getting a buck in shooting light for me will be a crap shoot. Guess you can't shoot a good buck unless you spend the time in the woods.
