    A lul later this week could have been the 2" of rain and high winds but I think it is ready to bust open the forcast and temps are not going to alter the activity the deer will move morning and night.

    Hoping to get out tomorrow afternoon and have something to report. Busy working on fence yesterday and today and saw a few does running through pasture. Couldn't tell from where we were if there were any bucks.

    Scouted this morning and had one of my shooters hanging out in a bean field. Watched for about an hour. About five minutes in, my new number one, probably 130" that I've never seen came out. Ran the little buck off once is all. Man it was a beautiful symmetrical 8. Watched a few does running around too but nothing chasing them yet.

    I was out Thursday Friday and yesterday morning, it was slow. I saw one little spike... Nothing seemed to be moving, even on our drive to and from property. Usually you need one foot on the break... What we did have on our cams was mostly night movement. I think the wind killed us.

    Pretty active last night, saw a spike chasing and grunting had a nice buck chase a doe into the plot. Will see how the weather influences the deer this week but it is on the chase phase.

    Checked my camera tonight in the location I plan to hunt all day Friday. Had a shooter come through yesterday morning at 8am. Also had a huge buck I saw for the first time through binos scouting Sunday morning come through the same morning at about 4am.


    Buddy text me about 330 this afternoon that he missed a 120" buck. Fast forward to about an hour ago and he called me and said he missed an even bigger, roughly 140" buck. I don't know what his deal is, whether it's nerves or something out of whack with his equipment but bummer. Both within 25 yards.

    He said he saw 6 bucks and at least half of them were chasing does around and nose to the ground. Thursday/Friday could be good after the cool down and rain.

    Saw a Buck with a doe in an open field this morning on my way to work. I can only assume he was chasing her and they stopped for some reason out there. Made me wish I wasn't going to work but in a Stand.

    Absolutely in full swing here in central MN.

    Our hit list buck was chasing does from 7:30-9:30 yesterday morning (wouldn't leave the does and was at 75yds). Brother said he saw 9 bucks on their feet.

    Went out last night and seen two of my hit listers chasing does around the creek bottom all night. School had a late start this morning due to teacher meetings, I could have slept in but decided to head back into the same stand on the creek bottom. Shortly after day light i let out a series of grunts. Heard a grunt and a deer jump the creek to my South, then heard something coming to my west.. turned and looked and it was a nice 10 or 11 point coming right in.. he started going left so i grunted quietly and it was enough to bring him into about 15 yards. Drew back and he stopped behind a tree working a scrape so i was drawn back for roughly 2 minutes.. he walked out and sailed one right over his back. Warm temps arent affecting the rutting activity at all!! Gotta love November!!:evilgrin:

    Anything new guys?

    Hunted all day Saturday and only saw 10 does. Think it's time for me to take one and be done for the season.
