Trying to figure it out.... saw a big 10 chasing doe about 2 weeks ago on a game cam video. Other than that, nothing but a small buck walking with his nose on the ground.

I hunted yesterday and today from 6am to 1pm - Fair amount of movement, but didn't see any big bucks. I've got pics of some big bucks showing up mid-day Tues & Wed of this week.

I also watched some small bucks chase after a doe that had a yearling and she wasn't ready, so it's getting close.

All the old threads on TB and my trail cam pics from the past leads up to say rut in Grayson is around 27th to 5th, but that's my information and others may disagree.

Those are my dates, from 20+ years experience hunting here. I don't care if you call it rut, post rut, secondary rut, or whatever, those are traditionally the dates when I have the most mature bucks on camera in the daylight with does.

Default Grayson County rut activity??

Yeah, really thinking Iím going to pass on the hunt. The spots I really want to hunt, I canít get to. Kinda been a chit ordeal leading up to this. I fíing hate when someone borrows something and doesnít return it. Kinda screwed me out of 5 days of hunting. Sucks knowing there is a 150+Ē deer on cam in the area and lord knows what else based off the rubs Iíve found..

Seems to be about how every hunt I plan goes... so dam frustrating that itís past midnight and I canít sleep!

For what it's worth........

I have 6 ac on Sandy Creek. There's a feeder and foodplot 150 yds from my back door. I watch it all the time. Get some monsters on cam at night, but rarely any daytime pics.

Well........ let's just say I should have been sitting in that stand this am.

(and..... had a shooter in daylight on another Grayson place on Mon.)

Hunted this evening on the Cooke/Grayson county line (rifle side). 6 does and a real decent buck, just not the one I’m after. Didnt see any rut action. Will be back out in The AM. Good luck!

Very little. I have been getting about 6-7 hunts in per week. I'm running about 10 cameras. The deer are more active in the thick stuff for sure, set up a few spots to hunt from a climber/learners and I am corning by hand.

There have been some nice deer killed in the last couple weeks mid morning on bordering properties, 1 real nice one I had on camera earlier in the year.

I have seen 3 does this morning, they came out and had some corn then sprinted towards and past me, I did not see anything chasing them or spook them.
