Default Freestone deer activity

The deer are not moving good and not coming to corn much at all. The acorns are starting to get eaten up or rotten. I hope something changes. I am hunting away from feeders but itís pretty dead. Whatís the update on deer around freestone for yíall.

Overall deer activity is pretty slow. Corn is piling up under my feeder here at the house until the pigs come through. Deer still have plenty to eat back in the woods. Bucks are still showing some interest in doe. My son killed a really good 8 last night up off CR 246. Sitting over a clover/wheat field had 7 doe come out and the buck came out about 20 minutes later. He said the buck was bumping the doe and showing some interest in them. Lots of time still left in the season, maybe things will pick up some more

I am still having deer come to the my food plots morning and evening as usual. They have not been hitting the feeders at all. I hog hunted the last 7 nights and had deer start showing up in the food plots around midnight every night and feed for a few hours or until I shot a hog and scared them off. I still have a lot of trees dropping acorns, it's going to be a while before these are all gone. Keep at it, when all the acorns are gone they will start moving better.

Not a whole lot has changed..besides the colder weather finally coming in. Corn still piling up under the feeder till the hogs come clean it all up. I bet things change shortly though with acorns finally playing out and colder temps setting in. Moon will be in our favor also.

Well maybe the rain and cold weather will take a toll on the acorns and get them moving.
