Did see several freshly opened scrapes along the edge of the bean field on the walk back in though!

Weíre all in, everyone saw a couple deer. Looks like the rut is on the verge of fully letting loose with the temp dropping rapidly. Food P0rn to come.

As the fabricator of the original feeder that set all of this in motion, you had a hand in making all this happen! Appreciate it bud!

Dan and I saw 40-50 deer out in the bean field right at dark last night, including a couple of nice bucks. Should be a good day today!

All set at Eagles Nest again...overcast this morning and cool. I didnít bump any deer on the walk in, but right after I dropped Travis off, I realized I didnít have my binocs with me...not the best way to start the morning, but hopefully all the action will be in close this morning!

Just had a buck walk across the island moving west to east...he was on a mission out cruising, so maybe things are about to turn on! He had a big body and pretty decent height on his rack, plus he was heading down the river toward Travis...hopefully he will step out into Disc Plot a little later this morning where Travis can get a look at him

Just had a doe and yearling moving out on island, then 2 year old 8 came out of the trees on the island and followed them to the northeast. Tried rattling at the buck to see if he was interested but he just looked in my direction, then went back to following the does

Travis and I packed out and got his doe. Headed back to camp to clean her and make a plan for mid-day, early afternoon. Pulled cards from game cameras and found a couple nice ones where Travis was sitting so might have to put in our time down there to get them working those scrapes in daylight

Sitting in the same stand where Dan sat last night and saw close to 50 deer out in the bean field. When I walked out to meet him last night, we had a buck push a doe right up into the creek crossing where we were waiting for Travis to drive the ranger through the field to clear the deer instead of us walking out through them.

As part of the arsenal packing list of things we brought up, I packed my two deer decoys that I havenít used much at all at the ranch lately. We figured if we can attract the attention of the deer out on the field, we can get them to come in a whole lot closer for a shot.

I set the decoy up about 60 yards off of the field edge (100 yards from my stand) so we can see how they react to the decoy before moving it in closer to my setup







There are some great views from this setup and itís a comfortable ladder stand in a tree that leans back...almost like sitting back in a recliner watching the big screen!!!

Had a more mature buck come in this evening. He offered several easy shots but I passed looking for something a little larger.

One to pack it up and go cook some dinner.

Baur and Jack headed out just a little while ago, while Dan, Travis and I are going to hit the stands in the oak flats a little later this morning to see if they are chasing more in the bluffs and we are missing it

In Sunday mid-day we moved 2 cameras to cover fresh scrapes and the results were very good so yesterday we moved 3 more cameras to cover fresh scrapes at other stand locations in hopes of patterning where some of these mature bucks have gone
