Anyone seeing any promising bucks this summer? I have seen a LOT of does this spring/summer and a few small bucks here and there. So far the only good bucks I've seen was about 3 weeks ago in the middle of the day, as I was driving to work they stepped out of a small thicket into a bean field about 50-60 yards from the road. I'm telling you fellas, these 2 dudes were huge! Already pushing the 150" mark and I was able to slow down and get a very good look at them to. Of course I'm sure that property isn't able to be hunted but I'm gonna try to find out lol! But as far as by the house this year... not so good. I have 1 doe that shows up fairly regularly in the evenings, very little pics/videos during the night, and haven't had a buck on the camera's for a few months now. What's everyone else seeing this year......

I run a feeder some what ( in winter and then till mid summer some what, don'
t keep it full all the timne, just add some here and there now a days!)
But , this is the second yr in a row I haven't seen a buck in my yard, and the ONLY 2 yrs I can say that in the 20+ I am here
and NO the bears DON"T keep them away, always have same amount of bears over the past 30+ yus here, get bears and deer at same time alal the time!

also, have a few really BIG doe's with NO fawns too, second yr ina row ion them too!


NOW if I walk a 1/4-1/2 mile behind my place(have like 10,000 acres behind me)
I will see a LOT of small bucks and doe's and fawns, the land owner behind me has about a 100+ acres of food plots there and they really seem to be holding the critters there
all but Bears
I get a LOT of bears here all the time
12 different one's so far this yr

but even on the plots haven't seen anything BIG this yr, but honestly haven't been looking for them either!
as this will be yr 3 I ain't deer hunting , kinda got burned out on killing them LOL
here is a couple pic's of the largest bear this yr, a honest 600+ lb one
was here dogging a female about 25+ times over a 3 week period
even took a nap here while she hid from him

she had him going in circles around the equipment trailer, poor guy couldn't get any closer than half a lap behind, she had him working for it!!
she is about a 350 lb female, very large for a female too!

I got the tag number off this one too, and KNOW the real weights as he was tagged last June at 593 lbs, and he's bigger this yr!, by fall, he's an honest 750+ lb bear or more!
a true monster of a black bear

have a second one that shows up that is about the same size but a LOT younger, this guy is OLD maybe 18+ yrs old

There for a lil while I was seeing deer almost every night on my way home from work but here other last couple of weeks it seems like that has died off. Of course these 90+ temps aren't helping at all...

Uhh...ok lol. So anyways driving home tonight, about 10:30, up ahead I saw a small animal in the rd. Thought maybe it was a coyote, got up on it and it was a very lil fawn, spots head to hoof. I literally had to stop and keep beeping at her until she finally stumbled off into the woods, poor lil thing was clueless to what was going on, prolly wasn't a week old. I could have got out and picked her up and set her in the back seat with no problem, not sure where momma was at, hopefully still alive. Just thought it was cool....

Dropping a co-worker off at the Cleveland Airport last week, about 7:30 a.m. Was on Turnpike Westbound, and I often see deer on the right side of the turnpike between 77 and 71 so always looking. He was talking as I was starting to veer onto the off ramp of 71, I saw something big and brown, but knew it was too big to be a deer, as we got closer and started to make the turn, there were two BIG bucks, locked up. Forehead to Forehead, just standing there. Have never seen this other than on TV. If I didn't have to get to the airport, and was by myself, I would have stopped. They were huge bodied deer and with the tangle mess of antlers there was no telling how many points but both had tremendous Mass. I sure hope they got unstuck, would be a shame for one or both to go that way. I'll never forget that sighting.

Of course I don't live there full time but am driving up this week to plant and hang sets. One of our members sent us pics of a stud that was a mid 140's 8 last year that a mid 150's 9 this season with some extra trash on the bases. Hoping he's got friends he likes to hang with. Our property has and gets a lot of does due to our plot scheme so I hope for the best. Glad to see this site still up and running, looks like the usual crowd. Good luck this year fellas

Still no bucks here. I have a cam back in the woods that hopefully has something good on it for me, prolly checked it this weekend. Been seeing some does here and there but yep, no bucks. ??

So last week I was able to get back in the woods and relocate my stand to the opposite side of the woods, almost butts up to a good size pine thicket now. Everything looks real good and I gotta say I feel a lot more confident about this set up than where I was, but we'll see I guess. Today I took a couple big tsc mineral blocks back by the stand to bust them up. On the way back, I located the first rub of the year! Fresh too! Still had the shavings from the tree laying at the base of the tree on top of the leaves. May sound crazy but that's SO exciting...for the fact that I haven't had a pic of a buck since spring. Anyone else finding any rubs yet?

No rub as of yet but also just glassed the first buck of the season last night and probably 20 does

Saw a few does on the way home last night. Cameras are still pretty much empty here. Anyone have a big one patterned yet? I know these 90 temps aren't going to help us at all!

been seeing a nice 10 pointer not too far behind my place, but he never come into my yard, when I have my cam's at right now
and that's funny, as I have a lot of apple's dropping, and other than the past 2 yrs,
when them apples fall, I normally get a lot of deer eating them

yet to date, 2 yrs now in a row, not a single bucks has come for a apple
lots of doe and other critters, just NO Bucks
just very weird ,
and NO one is hunting or shooting them here , so its NOT like there not safe or being harassed?
last few yrs have had a LOT of bears here, but I get bears and doe's here at same time all the time??
and had bears and bucks here in the past??


the season's getting close, best of luck to you all !
