Man, that was a pretty exciting sit....first off really quiet from 3-5ish and the wind was still a bit gusty...I also tried one of those incense doe estrous sticks you lite up and stank a#* smoke woofed with the wind. I've been looking at those things for a couple years and though it was a bit weird but I wanted to give it a shot anyway. Then a rifle shot blasted and scured the crap out of me....sounded like it was super close, but at Walnut Creek area figured one of the ranches was close and sound traveled like everything does. That woke me up and 20 minutes later a doe walked from the trail they always come from but kept walking. 10 minutes later another doe followed in the same direction and kept cruisin...the wind was perfect and blowing my ozonic 300 scent wherever.(still not sold on it) then after sunset I see a big bodied deer following the same trail and I see this huge rack...Looked like he couldn't even get through the trees...very wooded area I'm set up at. He was about 25 yards but tons of trees and branches in the way...then he immediately turned around and started to trot away....I grabbed my buck grunt thing and gave a quick snort/wheeze warning in his direction then he comes back into sight at the same location as before and circled and trotted off again. I then gave two grunts and he comes back into view again...It looked like this target 8 I've only seen one time on camera way back when I first set up feeder. Still no shot and I can tell he was agitated and circling wanting to come in and investigate but he knew something was up. He paced in a couple more circles definitely wanting to scrap but just didn't take my bate and he trotted off again in the same direction. The incense stick was pretty much burning out with about a 3 hour burn time. I thought and wished it wasn't burning but again I never had a buck come in while sitting, so maybe it brought him in but he knew I was blowing smoke up his arse(literally) So your guess is as good as mine if it worked or made him more cautious if I hadn't put it out in the first place. Not sure if I'm going to try it again or not, but if I do, maybe I'll cut it in half for just an hour and a half burn time. Man, that was a really fun 31/2 sit. I now know what you guys talk about having buck fever...I'm roasting after this big boy. What a beautiful sight to see

Saw some nice bucks at a field in Cedar Park I frequent with my camera in hopes of getting some good pictures and tonight (of course didn't have camera) I saw two really nice bucks on the does following them around and trying to mount them. They kept following their trail head down and at one point the big buck gave a good smack at the smaller 8 point to tell him to bug off. This continued till dark. Never seen this before and was pretty cool to see. This isn't the 2nd rut I keep hearing about is it? And if so, lake Georgetown should be on the same schedule yes? Buck fever anyone?

There are several ruts, about 28 days apart. The does that don't get bred or didn't come into heat on the first one come in 28 days later. Then it happens a third time and even a fourth time when some early fawns are mature enough to come in. That is where you see little spotted fawns way later then they should be around.

Thanks for the info...Guess that would make sense why the buck was only targeting one of 2 out of the 6-7 does. He would walk by others an not even look at them, and trail behind the ones who were probably ripe. The does were still not having it though. Interesting. Thanks

I think he shot it with a 22-20 and broke his neck. He was working today and I bet he saw him chasing.

I'm about a 10 minute walk from the Primitive camp site. I heard about 6 shots!! Then a couple more after that just around that time. I thought it was a little early for guys to be shooting deer, but I guess not. Ive got to be really close to y'all. That was probably my target buck!! Lol. What a great day for you guys. Dream animal fo sure
