Seen one hen ridding around this weekend. Still really wet and holding allot of water. Meet up with the game warden, he was driving around and checking on things. I told him thank you for keeping an eye on our place.

Hunted this area 2 years ago right at 1257 and 410. Tons and tons of does, and a few good shooter bucks. Would love to get permission at this place again in the future. Got my harvest processed at the local meat market in Detroit

We’re heading up this weekend, to check cameras and top off feeders again. Bucks are growing nicely, hogs are going crazy too!

We ran up last weekend to fill feeders and check cameras. It is slowly starting to dry out, we have some mud holes that haven't dried up since September of last year. Got my dads ranger stuck twice in one of the "dried" holes, and had to winch it out. if it will ever totally dry out, I will take up the tractor to disc up some of the ruts, and try to get our trails cleaned up. We caught a few smaller pigs in the trap, and got a couple of boys their first kills!

No luck at all this weekend. Animals were hammering feeders last weekend but acorns started falling this week and activity stopped. Had 3 different groups of hogs within 35yds of feeder Saturday afternoon and they never paid it any attention. Fed on pin oak acorns all evening.

We are totally covered up with hogs this year, it's going to be a battle to knock them down. As typical, we also have very few bucks on camera right now. I have quite a few that made it to shed their antlers, and I am anxiously waiting for them to show up this fall. Even with feeder pens, the hogs are staying around enough to keep most of the deer away. I shot a single and a double, and missed another small hog opening morning. if we keep shooting every one we see, they will become a little more feeder shy... hopefully. I have a feeling my AR will be getting a workout this fall.

Hope my feeder pens are still up if the hogs are that bad. Might leave the bow in the case and do some population control.

Seen a couple young bucks Saturday. Came into the feeder after the doe left. Anything worth shooting at our place is moving between 2-4 am.

Same here. Family trip up this weekend since we missed youth. If I can get the wife and kids motivated enough to get there before midnight it will be a miracle. Hoping for some good
Movement. Might be the only thing that gets them off the iPads .

They are definitely on the move. In the last week I’ve had more bucks on cameras at all hours of the day than the last 3 months. Watched a nice 8 and and young 10 push doe around Saturday morning. This weekend cold front with rifle season means a lot of deer will die.

Hoping my neighbor leave the rifles at camp long enough for me to get it done with a bow. Last year it sounded like a war zone at day light.

Last time I checked our cameras, I had a lot more bucks moving also. I was starting to get worried, as I generally have a pretty good number of them by archery opener. Still waiting on a couple of more survivors to show, to see what they are this year, but it's starting to look great. The boy wants to try his luck with the rifle, since he took his first bow kill a few weeks ago on a nice hog. Maybe a nice doe or spike will give him a good shot opportunity.

My boy and I were covered up with deer this weekend. We saw 19 different deer with 5 of them being bucks Saturday morning south of Cuthand. The next week or 10 days is going to be on. Bucks were dogging does like crazy this past weekend.

I know it's early but I'm getting my feelers out for a lease out there with you guys. I can fill from 1 to 3-4 spots, looking for a family friendly lease. We will take a brand new place or fill spots on an existing place, if it's right.

Please keep me in mind
