    every day I see a little more sign around here. Most activity is at night. Seeing more rubes and a few scrape show up. all seem to have been made by smaller deer. low rubs on small trees and prints in scrapes are small. headed to kr wma tomorrow to scout and xbow hunt before Quota hunting this weekend. I hope to see more activity there!

    Seeing more rubs and scrapes over past 2 days, I'd say with this coming weekends cold front and moon phase everybody will start seeing more daytime activity

    I haven't found much sign in whitley either, but seen one big 8 pointer I had on camera chasing a doe.

    Grunted a spike in and then my target 10 named "Mr Magic" came in afterwards. Ran the spike off. Good morning. 80 yards away.

    Kinda.......but I named him Mr. Magic cause it will take magic to put an arrow in him. First time I've ever seen this deer in daylight, even pics. I've gotten 9 shooter bucks on cam, so to keep up with them, they get crazy names.

    Not seen much but I think Saturday will be good. Cold spell coming and the extra traffic in the woods will get more deer on their feet. Try to hunt all day is my only advise.

    Just my opinion but I wouldn't do that. Kids don't have a long attention span and you don't want to make her hate it. I started with a few hours and let my son decide when he was done for the first few years. Now he gets mad if he thinks I came to get him too early.
