Saw this one today after orientation. Looked to be 3 to me. Close to ears. He looks big in this pic. Made a cool video of it. Scrapes all around. Rain and cooler temps on the way.

Gus is about the easiest place I found to find scraps.

A rub on a large tree I found a couple of weeks ago while I was squirrel hunting at Gus. It had a scrape beside the same tree

Well?, somebody has bound to shot something by now or has it been typical tough slow Gus?

Man i saw a lot of nice deer out there but all i heard was 1 hunter shot a buck late one evening that they never were able to recover, and then Saturday evening apparently someone shot a nice buck but never got a picture or found out the ending. A lot of deer are on that borderline of the 15" rule in my unit i hunted, but next year will be some freakin studs.

I saw a 3.5 yr old 8 point on Wednesday morning. Saw 8 does Thursday and Friday. Nothing in my comfort range. I limit myself to 30 yrds. Buck was at 35 then 45. Had a great interaction with him for about 10 mins.

I never heard of any deer shot, but I bet Friday afternoon and Saturday were amazing hunts. I had to leave Friday after morning hunt.

We were there also, we seen a lot of deer 20 between the 4 of us in 9s, but nobody seen a nice mature buck. We found scraps, rubs, tracks, and trails all over but could not seem to get on a mature deer. Great place, staff was awesome in helping us learn our area, will be putting in for this hunt a lot more.
