    Im out of tags this year so I took the rifle and set up on my favorite coyote hole. Seen a 3.5yr-4.5yr shooter strolling thru at daylight. head down, 1/4 speed with nose on the ground. seen him for 300 yards and never broke stride. just like it was November 7 all over again. Don't usually see much action like that this late myself. any others??

    And I missed the yote..... Sly little creature..... biggest one ive seen this year, 265 yards in a trot on an open field. Need to practice a little more with the new gun apparently.....

    I've seen more rut sign in the last 7 days than I saw in all of November. Tons of fresh scrapes and new rubs all over.

    Same as above. Haven't got to go since last Sat but rattled in a big 10 I couldn't get my gun on in time. New scrapes and rubs everywhere. Pulled two cards and had 5-6 nice bucks including two sparring hard on Dec 8. Prior to this had saw no decent bucks while hunting (actually struggled to see anything) and only saw two nice ones on cam in very early October. I hope to get out with the Xbow a day or two next week.

    I am heading out in the morning for a while. Was planning to hunt this afternoon but the weather is not going to allow that.
