Deer have been making scrapes all week at our place in zavala county. They werent quite interested in fighting yet but they were close as of sunday. With the new moon approaching plan on rattling from 10am - 2pm and even try to get in a stand during midday this week. Rattle hard and heavy the big mature bucks are going to be looking for a fight. If anyone thinks otherwise let me know but in Zavala county our bucks are close.

I went for a morning hunt in Duval on Monday morning and tickled the horns together for a while with no luck. Maybe things will be a little different after this weekend though.

We had several bucks semi-serious fighting last weekend around feeders. I watched the mature bucks that were around when a fight woudl break out and done acted like they were interested if they weren't the ones in the tussle. In short I think bucks are getting froggy but don't know what kind of response you would get yet. Probably couldn't hurt.
