Had a little buck come in behind me this AM. Got to 15 yards, mulled around for a few minutes and then went back from where he came. Pretty cool though. I hunted until noon and then scouted for about an hour. Checked a camera had a shooter come through at 11:15 am yesterday and some smaller bucks around 10:30 am. I'll be back out tomorrow AM.

Crap! That's all I saw was a bunch of scat. This weather is not helping. I've never wanted it to be cold so bad.

Do y'all think we are in the late rut or the post-rut?

Afternoon hunt, Thursday high of 44 and dropping with mostly cloudy skies or Friday high of 55 after morning low of 25 with clear skies?
I'm thinking Friday afternoon

I'm of the opinion that the rut extends into Dec but the chasing/activity is less frequent. The bucks will be searching for late estrus does and can still be seen during daylight. I know of 2 big bucks killed at the Vine in December, so my hopes are still high to tag one.

the peak of the rut is over, in my experience, but will have some still looking. They were back in bachelor groups at the end of Dec the last two years I hunted there. Food source, food source, food source... Good luck. Hope someone gets a good one.

late season is all scrub vegetation, as far as I am aware of and wasn't able to isolate any preferred food source. Pecans are rotten or gone and acorns as well. If you could find any Burr oak acorns around , I would hunt the crap out of it.

Froze my tail off this morning but it was great. Hunted a new spot that I put a camera in last Saturday. I bumped deer walking in. Got set up and a deer walked behind me in the dark. Didn't see anything after that. Checked the camera and had a giant walk by Tuesday at about 8:30 am. Had quit a few does and little bucks walking through there in the AM hours as well. Going to sit there again tomorrow AM. We'll see what happens.
