My season was on fire at the end of October and strong until about 11-7-13. I could see things were not normal. But I was still getting a pig and several good three year olds on camera. But, the doe movement has been off all season. Now, for the last six sits I've seen 1 small buck and a couple doe in the far distance. The only doe I've seen have been over 100 yards and from stands I've never sat in before. All I can figure either there is No food here or they've patterned me and stay away.
I think my deer started rutting the end of October. Like normal years. All the scrapes I was watching haven't been touched in a long time. I was hoping the "rutting moon" would trigger more action. But, it looks like the opposite is happening.
