No deer this morning

10 posts in this topic

So after two mornings of good action in a new spot, all of a sudden I see absolutely nothing this morning. I did notice a stand about 60yds from mine that someone else put up, but I dont know that it wasnt already there. it could have been and i may have just missed it. I cant figure this out. Was it the warm weather and the cloud cover? That is honestly the only thing i can think of.

Maybe they are busting you on your entry exit route. It isnt hard to burn out a stand if one isnt careful.

agree with Eskimo--- dont over hunt a good stand... sure way to kill the action.

I cant hunt it now until after this coming weekend. Maybe things will get back to normal.

i agree that they might be busting you coming out of the stand but we also have to look at how close we are to the rut and all the deer are locked down.... movement always sucks during that time of year

I hunted this last friday night and saturday morning and didn't see any deer. Saturday night I also did not see any deer during hunting hours, however I did stay out for a few hours after sunset to see if anything was moving. Of course about 45 minutes after complete darkness I saw the outlines of 5 deer moving through. I hope they start moving during hunting hours so I can get one

I dont understand how deer in one part of the state can be fully in the the rut and another they have yet to really start.

Ive also gone a long time in one stand without seeing anything. It is just weird to be having good action and then all of a sudden nothing.

The rut goes as the Does go. Right now, in my area, the does are not being very receptive. Last night one bolted for the woods at the sight of a small buck. 15 miles down road, those does are being more receptive. It was just picking up when the weather turned and we got this little heat wave, I think that it will pick up considerable in the next couple of days when the front goes through.

Like 96 said it all depends on the does. If one goes into heat early someone will always say the rut is on in October when really one doe is providing all the action. We have had seasons where one guy will see all kinds of action and another guy 2-300 yards away doesn't see a deer. You really just have to be in the right place when that hot doe comes by. Over the years I have seen the best rutting action from November 8th through the 12th, but different parts of the state can vary from region to region.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
