Anybody made it out yet since the semi-cold arrived?

Recommended Posts

I too have still been seeing them almost all in the evening.  

FINALLY I will get to get out and sit this Friday and hopefully can stick an arrow in one... Heading down Thursday evening to Steelville.  Looks like they are going to get rain and snow into the wee hours.  Hoping maybe a layer of the white stuff will get them moving around for me Friday morning...  If not then at least it will be nice and quiet moving around with everything wet, soaked, and cold for firearms opener LOL.

Going to Stockton Lake Friday-Sunday. Going to for an observation sit Friday evening with the bow. Saturday and Sunday We'll be in a ground set waiting for deer to move through a timber spot. 

 

Jester all the movement I have been seeing is around food for about an hour around daybreak, late afternoon in the hardwoods, and I'm seeing the highest concentration of deer an hour prior to dark as they come to the field to field. Haven't seen a lot of cruising deer in the day (about an 1 hrs north on HWY-61 out of St. Louis), hoping that changes and that they're moving around Stockton.

Deer were going bonkers up in Linn County this past Tuesday and Wednesday. I've never seen so much chasing in the woods in such a short period of time. Actually got to watch a buck breed a doe, which was a first for me. Between Monday evening and Wednesday morning, we killed two button heads, a fawn doe, a big doe and a 3.5 year old 8 pointer. I had a chance at a 130 class 8 pointer before I shot the buck, but a big doe was staring right at me and I had to move slow to try and get turned for a shot and the buck got through my opening before I was ready. We tried to call him back with grunts and wheezes, but he made a scrape and then took off after some other does. The buck I shot came cruising right to us around 8:30 and I shot him at 12 steps. My buddy and I decided to give the deer a break Wednesday evening and get in a couple limits of crappie as well. The redneck grocery store was very giving this week!

Wow Seth you did do some grocery shopping, congrats!

Was out for a walk yesterday, saw a 6 point about 50 feet away, usually bucks around here will spook pretty quickly, but he just kind of slowly walked away then stopped.  Then sure enough saw a doe back in the brush, they both moved a little further back in the brush where I could not see them, but then heard some 'wheezing' going on.  It is that time of year for them.
