Of the four times Iíve been out, two have been on public land (a good-sized state park) and two on a farm 60 miles north. My buddy hunted for two days in September three hours west of here and didnít see anything either. Anyone else experiencing this?

The mast on the ground is unbelievably plentiful, despite the severe drought we had this summer (so Iím no longer sure thereís a correlation between rain and mast). Itís like if the deer want to eat during the day, they can just poke their heads out from the thickets and nibble on acorns and donít have to go anywhereÖ

I've seen absolutely no deer during the Alabama archery season so far.

Which state park do you hunt? Find a hot trail near thick cover and stay put ALL day. I don't go by buck sign or hunt fields. I just find a good used trail and stay put. Eventually they will use that trail. If it is in or near a funnel it is even better. They should start moving good soon with the rut and cooler temps. Just stay at it and stay in the woods longer if possible. I have been seeing most of my deer from 8 till noon.
