    Ended up hunting both Saturday and Sunday morning. About 7:45 Sunday morning had two young bucks come in below me. They proceeded to tickle horns and lightly push eachother around about 20 yards from me. Got me thinking. Would it be too early this weekend for muzzleloader to start using some estrous scents or ruttin' buck. Wasn't sure if that would attract or merely make them cautious because it's too early.

    Went to a spot I kno there is a mature buck because I got a pic of him on a scrape last week only one pic in 2weeks I put out some buck in rut scent the deodorant stick kind on the licking limbs and some of the rubs in the area I'll update Friday if I have noticed any more or different movement already had a few small bucks working the area over pretty good.
