    I'll let you know later today when I check my cams. My deer started changing a couple weeks ago, so I deployed my entire Covert fleet onto the property (10 Coverts on 640 acres). If they are on the properly, I'll have them on camera :tu:

    I'm in eastern KS right on the MO line...
    My deer have mostly shed velvet and are still changing coats but nearly done. Bucks are still running together here as of yesterday (at least the young ones) I haven't see nany scrapes or rubs yet. Fawns are nearly grown and have nearly no spots on them.

    I need to look around more, I have over looked this thread for a while.

    I'm seeing fewer deer this year than normal, makes me think the drought has thinned them out some. still plenty of hunters though.

    Same thing I saw night before last. Morning hunts have been better for me during this moon cycle.
