    I was on the mountain parkway today, and from Campton to Prestonsburg there was seven roadkill deer and two of them where bucks. So I would say things are definitely improving. I was in Clay co. yesterday and saw two roadkill deer on Hwy 80.

    As of two nights ago, I had pics of 5 bucks at the feeder at the same time. I also had been getting 300-400 pics a night and nothing durin the day. I checked the cam before my hunt this evening and I only had 40 pics from last night...it is like the deer have packed up and moved. This particular stand site I have seen deer in every sit except for the last 3 days, in which I have seen nothing. But when I came of the hill this evening, I saw at least 1 buck and 4 other deer in the corn field.

    The last few evenings I have seen several does in the fields right at the edge of dark and they never even had a small buck harassing them.

    Got these pics the other night. One day time pics of a small 4 point and does. Think it's getting heated up. I'd say in about a week it should be real good.
    These pics are in Johnson county

    I think come Friday when the weather turns via barametric pressure, things will light up like a Vegas Strip.......I am still getting bucks and does on the feed, the bucks are sparring, but the bigger boys are still holding back.

    I think you're right High Rack. I am hoping this cold front moving through Thursday ought to get them up on their feet a little more during daylight hours. I won't get to hunt again til Friday...I would love to put one down before the weekend.

    Just found my first few rubs this week. No scrapes. Tons of doe pics but the bucks are no where to be found. Seen plenty of does while in the stand. They still have their fawns with them and no bucks anywhere. Not seeing any deer on the side of the road or and road kills. I'm thinking the 2nd weekend of gun season will be good.
