    2012/2013 Daily Hunting Report, Deer Activity, Season Information & Rut Report HERE!

    Everyone, let us know what you are seeing out there for deer activity when you are scouting and while hunting this season. If you are comfortable with it, list the county or region you are reporting from. If your report is from a state other than Ohio please still list it here but make sure you mention what state it's from and again, the county or region of that state.

    Let us know when you find rubs, scrapes, pre-rut, rut and all post-rut activity. Additional information such as acorn reports, what the deer are eating in your area, deer activity such as bachelor groups, family groups or herding, sparring activity, knock down drag out fights and even the moment you spot a buck with shed antlers. Let us all know! Pictures to go along with your post would be great!

ID:	9044 Pulled trailcamera cards yesterday... ..lots of does with fawns up feeding until about 10;00 A.M. I did capture what I think is an old buck that I have never seen before and a red fox. Weather cooling down... been seeing large groups of deer in evenings..8-10 at a time feeding at dusk.

    I say old because of the saggy belly and the wrinkled neck...

    2012/2013 Daily Hunting Report, Deer Activity, Season Information & Rut Report HERE!

    Ok thought I would start a daily report

    I didn't hunt this morning, just didn't want to
    got out this evening set up about 4 pm in the tree
    had a lot of cloud cover and 10-15 mph winds, which died to almost zero winds by 5;30
    at 5;45 I had 4 doe come out and feed in front of me till about 6 then worked there way off out of range in a food plot
    at 6;05 I had 2 of my better bucks show up, had them both at 15 yrds feeding not knowing I was there, both are 8 pointers, one being about 19 wide, and the other only about 16 but super heavy, like 7 inch bases heavy all the way up
    would guess they both would be border line 140 ish bucks, I have been passing on these two for two yrs now, hoping they make it one more yr, so they get a pass again this yr from me!
    they fed for about 15 minutes in range then like the does worked there way out of range
    then I had a small 4 pointer show up and then 2 more smaller 8's , only these last two 8's never came with in 50 yrs of me
    and then right after I lowered my xbow, I had another bigger 8 pointer at least come out right at the base of my stand, he actually walked up to my xbow and almost licked it
    he was out past his ears, and I am sure I could see 3 on each side, not sure about browe tines or not, too dark

    so that was my opening day, over all a good evening sit

    I saw 2 bucks and 4 doe sat morning and nothing in the afternoon. Im guessing the moon had them miving all night so thats why i saw the am movement going back to bed. I did see a little basket pushing two doe across the beans. It wasnt aggressive but it sure wasnt a coincidence he was behind them mirroring their movements.
    ive hunted my whole life, the rest I just wasted

    Yesterday I shot my first ever deer. She is a little thing but it can only get better from here. She came in a little after 7 am. While waiting in the stand I caught sight of a nice 8 point buck about 70 yards from me. He was very cautious and it took him about half an hour to move out. Went out last night and saw nothing. This morning I went out to the same stand and at 7:25 I had 8 does come in. I was shaking line a leaf. I was sitting and the bow was hanging. The first Doe in looked at me for a while so there was nothing I could do. She finally dropped her head and I was waiting for her to turn so I could get ready when she looked right at me an blew me up. Three of them took off west while her and the others just backed in to the brush. Then she blew me at least ten more times. That's when I knew my morning was shot.

    Went out yesterday morning and saw one small buck way off in thick cover. Back out last night and had eight does under me for about 20 minutes. One mature doe had twin fawns and the big doe had triplets. They all looked very healthy and spots were gone. In walks a big old doe with no fawns with about 10 minutes of legal light left.... I shot her quartering away at 15 yds... slid it in between ribcage and front shoulder. The Muzzy put the whammy on her! she fell down the hill and then crawled and staggered another 15 yds with the Lumenok shining like a brake light. I am now a huge fan of the quartering away shot!!

    09/29/12 (Sat)- AM. Hunted on the ground at the edge of a hollow where deer cross from big woods across a pasture field to their bedding area Saw two small does but no shots. Beautiful opening morning, cool and nice light breeze. Not much hunting opening weekend because it was my 3 year old's birthday Saturday.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher
