No-show this evening. I know when he does come in it will be totally random, going to need a good bit of luck on my side to get this done.

Good!!! I wasn't ready for this thread to end yet without a night spent in the stand!

Sitting back and waiting for a pattern to see what he does?

Sort of, although mature deer can be difficult to pattern if at all.. Ive noticed the past couple of days my regular group of 3 does have disbanded, two are completely MIA.
Can only assume they have come into estrus and likely locked down with him or another buck. Seems kind of early I know, but we have seen a fair amount of rutting activity here in the neighborhood the past few days.

Officially all three of the better deer from last season have come home. Amazing how they all show up about the same time.. within 5 days of one another. Believe this deer to be only 3.5 going back on last year's pictures.. man he's going to be a superstar if he can make it to 5!

Thatís good news! Maybe his appearances will fall in line with the moon phases and you can pattern him a little better. Followed a deer that way last year and was fairly consistent

I'm in too. Man I'd be tempted to hang a doe pee drip or something about now. Are you hunting him out of a pop up blind? Do you have a tree stand option at this point?

I have both which i set up about a month ago. A hang on and a ground blind brushed in very well.. If wind permits id rather hunt from a tree, much more visibility and shot opportunities.

Think im gonna sit back and see if he gets on some sort of pattern or locks on one of the does. Probably my best bet is for him to follow a doe to the setup

That's my bet. Rain this weekend and then a pretty decent cool snap next week. He'll screw up.

Maybe it's just me, but as resident as he was last year on a feeding pattern, I would try to wait till he's back on the feeding pattern. He knows the corn is there so if he gets back on the pattern during daylight, I bet you can kill him. I definetly wouldn't burn this spot out this early, there's plenty of season left to get it done. That being said, there's no way I'd stay out as doe begin their cycles never know what could happen.

Thats the plan, plenty of time to catch him slipping..
I've actually only hunted there twice this year so I dont burn the area out. Really expecting something to kick off soon with the rut ramping up. Historically its always a good week leading up to Halloween..

Earlier and earlier he's getting. This evening he came in at 7:19! Within a few minutes of legal shooting light! This South East Wind isn't going to hold up much longer so I'm going to gamble he does something similar tomorrow and make an evening of it. Once that wind switches around to the northwest that will be no good for the setup. Let's get this dude on the ground!!

This ol wiley Buck wont come easy.. at times I feel like the deck is stacked against me. A deer like this makes only one or two mistakes all season and I need to capitalize when he does.
Rutting activity is building fast. Seeing a lot of deer run over on the highways and a few bucks locked down with does here in the neighborhood. I actually hit an 8 pointer last night on the way home that was running stupid on a doe! Wont be long til one of those does gets hot and brings Mr. Big straight in.. Will be glued to the camera in the meantime awaiting my opportunity.

Last season we used a Covert that was loaned by a good friend. Great camera, but horrible on batteries. At times it would go through a set of 12 AAs in a week. (Possibly could have been the settings)

This year I bought my own and decided to go with the Bushnell Agressor HD Wireless.. Its a good camera for the money, but there are a couple of huge misses with the phone app. No zoom on pics is the main aggravation for me personally, frustrating to have to take a screenshot then zoom in. Id give it 3 stars.

Buddy of mine has the Spartan and loves it. Looking back that might have been a better option, but theyre similar priced to the Coverts.

Will the bushnell app let you save the pictures to your phone? If so, you could then use your normal photo gallery app to take a closer look or edit pics etc.. Just pull any individual interesting ones to your gallery app and take a look or delete.. sucks you can't just do it on a photo viewer app by buahnell...lol. doesn't make much sense!

Good luck to you ol'13 sure has some character. As for Biggie no good guess on score but he is the perfect ten. I would shoot him on sight but I wouldn't mind seeing him make it another year either.
