I am going to use some code blue esterous tomorrow morning...I think that we are in the early stages of the seeking/chasing phase....however, bucks are looking for does that are coming into esterous, so I believe right now is a good time. Also, this is the time of year when you stay on stand as long as you can....bucks will be cruising all day. Good luck!

now should be good, some does come in season way early, some come in way late, i think anytime from mid oct thru jan you can prob use estrous with success.
