Pat,
Not to far, I"m over in Elkhart county. Nice spot with good sign. I think what is killing us right now is our corn isn't cut yet. I really hope the farmer get it out before the end of the week. Out last night and between the two of use we saw three. One doe followed the path I came in on and I think she busted me, moved though pretty quick though the corn. Good Luck!

What part of IN??? Up North we have not seen any running. It's been very slow.

I have seen plenty of bucks chasing does. Last weekend I saw 4 bucks chasing 1 doe( must've been one of the first does to go into heat. I can't wait to get out into the woods tomorrow.

I feel your pain, but fortunately the bucks were moving great last week in my area...getting the does out of the corn. Like I stated in the midwest forum here, as I left this morning the 2 farmers with corn surrounding our woods were getting their combine and wagons ready. Hopefully they got it all off today.....b/c I plan on hunting in the morning.

We couldn't believe it last night, the darn farmer was tilling one of the fields that he had already cut before taking down what is on our property. Will see, I just made a call to find out if he was taking it out tonight or not. Waiting to hear back. I really think this property will start poping once the corn comes down.
