Most of my pics have groups of does and the next pic has smaller buck with nose down and no does, so tension is building and bucks are scoping out the does.

I have not seen, nor have any of my cams picked up any rutting activity. The rut is most certainly not over. It is just getting ready to start.

We are still seeing just the younger bucks chase. These does haven't com in heat here. We've got about 10 that are resident does. I can assure you that when they come into heat, we know it. It happens the same way every year. The mature bucks are in the area, just mainly moving at night. The time just hasn't come yet.

Good News? My largest buck Billy came back last weekend.

Bad News? It was at 2 am.

Bad News II? I only had three photos, and one of them was me as I walking up to check the camera. So over a weeks time I didn't have anything. I chalk it up to the corn going bad. My brother in law tossed his camera and corn out and got a bunch of does and smaller buck, so they are near by. We'll see how the fresher corn goes this week, though I'm suspecting nocturnal if they show up.

I would chalk it up to that logo in the bottom left corner of your trail cam pic. I have a couple of them as well and when the batteries get below about 50% the sensor does not work unless you walk right up to the thing. As soon as I put fresh batteries in it starts working like normal again.

Im in Fannin Co but we are finally seeing some movement on trail cam. Last year the rut was in full swing by Nov 13th (I shot a buck that was tending a doe, so I can confirm the rut status and the date! )

Same thing has happened to us up in Grayson. About 2 weeks or so ago all of the deer just disappeared. We were getting a decent amount of pics and had some decent bucks coming in and now we are lucky to get 5 or 10 pics a week and all are at night. Tons of acorns everywhere. Just praying one walks by while in the stand this weekend.
New to Grayson and glad to find out it isnt just me.

I had a buck every bit of 170 cruise through my field at about 730 this morning. There was a doe that walked the same path about 2 minutes before he did. Only reason I don't have an LDP is because he came out at 50 yards and was getting further away as he walked across the field. I will be back after him tomorrow.

I've worked 2 deer vs car on 82 between lindsay and Muenster. Both with 100yards of each other. Both young, but spectacular potential. One Wednesday, one friday.

I hunted Grayson this morning. Used a doe decoy and a small 8 pt buck came in to check her out @9:30. He circled her for about 20 min then ate little corn. Decoy had doe urine on her and he didn't tackle it. I still think we are a week away from rut at our place. Cold weather/front hits Friday night. Saturday may be goooood!

It took 200 pics a couple weeks back. Right around the time everyone on here started saying the bucks were rolling in acorns, the photos let up.

That said, this is year three with this camera so it's life-expediency is almost run out, brand aside!

Default More and more sign

I hunted the evening hunts Fri, Sat, and Sun last week. Still not much in the way of feeder activity during the day. A small 8 and doe on Sat at noon. Lots of new scrape and rub sign showing up around my hunting zone. Had a decent 16" short tine 3 yr old come by me Sat evening at 10 yds. He got a pass. Holding out for one particular deer or maybe a new one I have yet to see. Hope the cold front this weekend sours some acorns and gets them on their feet. Have seen a few crusin around 8 am and then right at dark. Gotta keep at it. It only takes being in the right place at the right time once to bag a giant.

I will be checking cameras here in about an hour. We shall see when and what is moving.

Cold weather seems to make these deer move more than anything. Looks like we will be getting exactly what we were waiting on this weekend.

I'm starting to see some does come into heat. Jumped a shooter midday Sunday holding close to a doe, saw him again the next day bedded down with her. Still getting plenty of pics of does with yearlings or in groups. Only seen young bucks so far on the prowl.
