Tomorrow should be good. Light rain in the am and light NE wind after the rain.

Hoping the rut kicks on soon. I'll be out next weekend and Monday/Tuesday. Been in north Oklahoma since Wednesday. Stuck two does there on Thursday. The rut was in full swing there. Saw a tall 6 by 7 chasing a doe but was out of range. Just about tired of this warm TX weather...

Anybody hunting during the week. Just curious about deer movement this week. Figure the rut activity should be picking up any time now. Plan on being out the either Thursday or Friday, possibly both days.

Nothing but crows and squirrels. LOTS of crows. Is there a more annoying creature on the woods than a bunch of crows?

Got down at noon to head home. Got in the truck and not a 1/4 mile down the road there were 7 doe in a cut cotton field, not a buck in sight. Ran into town to grab a bite to eat and then heading back out to sit this evening.

Got a quick bite to eat at lunch and was back in the stand by 1:30. Sat till dark, had 2 doe and a button buck come in together right before dark. Checked camera card when I got home and only had 1 deer (shooter buck) on camera but he was there at 2am a couple of days ago. Action's gotta pick up soon. No sign of the rut starting as far as I can tell.

Hopefully this cool front will ignite a fire in the bucks.

It'll be Wednesday before I can get back out there. I'm hoping the main part of the rut is going then, but there wasn't any sign of it even starting last Thursday.

Today was great. Saw 15 does total, and two very good size bucks. The two bucks were chasing hard on a single doe. Was out from 6am-4pm. May be out again tomorrow.

Going tomorrow. Trying to decide whether to sleep in due to the wind and hunt tomorrow evening. Not sure I'm up for an all day sit after the last 3 days at work.

Doesn't look like the wind is going to be as bad as they were saying yesterday. I'll get up and go in the morning and see how I feel as the day goes.

They are starting to really bump, follow and chase. Had a doe bed down behind me with a spike tending her, saw another doe getting chased by a big bodied deer. May be an all day sit after all today.
