Just had two 6 points at my corn. One at 10 yards and the other at 15. Both under 13", but it was a cool encounter!

Thanks. Next year perhaps you will have a full two weeks to go for the whitetail deer. You seem to have found a good spot

Can’t understand why people can’t understand the rules and just throw out some corn. One of the reasons they will want to shut it down. They are strict out there.

Well after 10 sits and about 50 hours of seeing nothing I decided last night to scout for a new stand location after my morning sit. I went to a spot that I found way before season that I thought might make for a decent spot and I get set up in a tree around 3, well 4 comes around a I decided it wasnít comfortable enough so I get down and setup in the tree beside it. 5:30 it start pouring down for about 20 mins or so, 6:30ish comes around Iím swatting mosquitos, on my phone and when I turn back there is a spike about 10 yards broadside! I get my bow up... and my freaking phone falls out of my pocket into the ground, he bolts off about 5 yards and stops, I then drew back because I could tell he was going to come and held it for a min or so and he stepped back into my shooting lane quartering hard, I nailed him and he ran about 40-50 yards.

Last year spoiled me, I saw 15 or so deer the first day I hunted and saw deer every sit. This year has been COMPLETELY different.

Congrats on the harvest! But I can agree, so far this year the deer just aren't moving much. I've seen 2 doe a fawn and a small buck. I've sat every evening so far and Friday and Saturday morning. Last year I was unemployed and sat every morning and evening for 15 days and saw something every sit except twice.

Thanks! Just stick with it man, Iíd recommend scout a bit and find a decent trail then set up and take one by surprised. They arenít hitting corn, i tossed a handful of corn and the spike stopped but he was already going through there.

I had tons of deer on my trail cams before season, now hardly any. Just caught a couple fawns during shooting light. This is my 5th sit and haven't seen a single deer. I would sit more but I have a wife at home that's 8 months pregnant haha. Maybe now that the weather is cooling off it'll go a little better.

Still tough hunting out here. Nothing showed this morning. Ventured out to do some searching and all I find is corn piles and cameras. Man, everyone has this place covered.

I've never, in 9 years hunting benbrook, seen this much pressure this early in the season. No wonder nobody is seeing deer.

I ended up getting a doe last Wednesday 10 min before the end of legal shooting light, pretty happy about it! I've had stuff going on since then so 1 last sit tonight and that'll be it. (At least the temperature is deer hunting temperature now)

Well just started my first sit. Wet, cold and probably won’t see anything but I’m going to make the most out of the little time I got to hunt this land.

As said above it was cold and wet but I was wrong about seeing anything. Had 2 does walk in a little before last light, decided to let them pass. Feeling good about where I set up.
