So far, just tree rat activity. I do have doe in estrous scent in containers around my stand location. It’s just about prime time.

Hahahaha. I tried a different stand because of the wind and I have almost zero service from that tree. Had some blowing down wind of me and that was it. I have some work to do after breakfast and then Iíll be back in the tree by 1:30 or 2.

This is the area Iím hunting today, itís a pine thicket and Iím pretty sure itís right next to some doe bedding. The pics on my camera here stay full of a resident herd of does, 3-5 of them, and a few immature bucks. Iím hoping one of them is starting to cycle soon and has some bucks I havenít seen yet cruising through the area. Iíll be on the ground today behind some trees and with a blowdown stacked around me. I should have decent signal there, heading out now.

Any sign of the rut starting in that area? Iím headed up to OK on Fri/Sat w my son to try to get him on his first deer. Hoping the cold front will get the bucks moving.

I've heard they're chasing up here but I haven't seen any sign yet. It's pre rut and the peak is only 8 days away. Cold front hits Thursday. I'll bet from Wednesday evening on its prime.
