Default Bucks

Hi Guy's
Just wondering is anyone starting to see the bucks trying to run the doe's yet ? We saw a few young bucks trying to run doe's last week. Good Hunting Trapper

2 days ago the bucks were still together, should be anytime before they start chasing.

Last night does and fawns were still together. The button buck fawns were grunting and chasing the doe fawns. They would start messing with the momma does and get popped by a front foot, like don't try that crap with me! I saw three dink bucks running together, chasing each other around a picked bean field, even sparring a little. I set my Dad up about 1/2 mile north of me, he didn't see any chasing but did see a nice buck and some does and fawns.

I have not seen many deer at all yet this season, last night was the exception...it's the only farm in a few mile radius with the corn picked. That has something to do with it for sure.

They are starting to move.

Hi Hunt
You are right for sure , movement will pick up as the corn comes down and the rut comes closer. Right now it is still warm and with the corn up they don't have to scrounge for food they can move later and eat and get back into the woods or just lay down in the corn, you will see alot more movement in the next 2 weeks.

Interesting article in the November "Field & Stream! "Best Days of the Rut", and "When to Use Scents, Calls, Rattling, and Decoys!

This is well written, and some good reading! You will love the first paragraph, and the reference made! Some good sound advise here, in my opinion! Get ready, it's here!

i just read that last night at work... amusing, the first paragraph. and like you said alot of good info, some will correct things i've done in the past. i usually will apply new ideas/technics as a general rule, but be ready for the off the wall stuff. example, when they suggest to not use the bleat call during peak rut. i sat down along a weedy edge near a creek that funneled out of CPR scrub on my last day of the first gun season. on my knees i ran the bleat twice and listened. i hear brush moving, then stop. one more call and the brushing is getting closer, so i raise my gun to the open area and out steps a nice 7 pt. i'm leveled out him but don't move and let him walk... i already had a buck and was bleating for a doe.

That's funny! I think we have all learned some things from our time in the field. (I mean our mistakes!) Some we may not want to post.

Bet you wish you had a fawn bawl going on that day, huh? That is one call that will bring in doe very well. I have used a fawl bawl to bring in coyotes in the spring, and had doe come instead! Their motherly instincts are strong! (remember this one ghost!)
