    Blind called and rattled in a solid buck (at least 6point) around 4:15 PM yesterday. Had a pair of Golden Estrous scent wicks, each at about 15 yards perpendicular to my stand. Buck came in downwind of me (behind me) and slowly walked to my left before meandering away. No response to grunt as he slowly walked away. I probably should have rattled. Didn't seem to spook but evidently knew something wasn't quite right. Had at about 30 yards but was through some smaller pines so no shot. Another 15 yards or so and would have been in a shooting lane.

    Haven't been able to get out much this year but he's the nicest I've seen on stand probably ever, and was the 3rd time I've seen deer on stand out of 6 sits, so I'll take it. I'd say the activity is on the rise for sure though.

    Seeing more sign. A scrape that is here every year and was smoking hot a month ago is fresh today with a big rub right next to it.... Looking good in zone 9

    I'm a south Shore zone 11 guy, getting pretty restless here! My cameras have been teasing me with a bachelor group of a 4, a 7, an 8 and a 9 pointer that like to come out at 8 a.m.
