Had a few new bucks this morning on cam.   Thinking they may be starting to feed in the winter wheat.  Killable just before 7am.   But I am going to wait it out a bit more before diving in.

Is the WW in a plot that you planted or ag field? I haven't seen much activity at all yet in the WW field next to my house. Beauty of a buck! I just had a new buck show up last night as well. Encouraging!

Its a field.   They may not be feeding there yet.  I just guessed because I had two new nice bucks only minutes apart this morning.  I doubt they are seeking does already.   But I guess there is movement when they start getting territorial.

Nah. I blast my 2"  hyperdomics through the shoulder all the time. I cannot get a complete pass through but it has always traveled all the way through to the otherside.. Not exactly where I was aiming but it worked..;)

Interesting because I too had bucks show up on 2 different properties, 3 different cams this morning. Some decent ones too. Still early before shooting light and only one tweener around 7:30. But after weeks of pretty quiet cams, it was a nice morning. Oddly had deer moving Friday night in the high 70's lol. Yearling bucks and does but still surprised me.

Live from the office, Hunted Saturday and Sunday. Purchased two cell cams this season. Saturday I had activity in the morning at a stand i wasn't in. So i sat there yesterday and saw nothing. Then a few more pics again this morning. Frustrating. Nobody has laid eyes on a deer yet on the lease.....Hopefully its just too warm...

 Sunday there was no wind to speak of. Very rare where i hunt that it was so still. Milk weed would just fall almost straight down. It more of a light breeze on Saturday. No idea what the wind is doing there this morning...

They are going thru the motions.

Other guys were hunting, Closest was probably 500 yds away if not farther. I have had that stand for years. Haven't ever been picked off in the past. I think its just hunting....

I’m running down after work to take advantage of the 80 degree weather to put up a new stand.  There’s a trail that used to get descent deer traffic, but it’s definitely increased this year.  Iv got 2 trees in mind that could work, but one is huge… might need to double up the straps to put a ladder up it.
