    Saw a spike yesterday afternoon. Cold all day today snow starting at 9. It feels like a great time to be in the woods. Wind chill at 25 degrees it should be a great day

    Out last night and never saw a deer. I was in a stand that never has dissappointed ... kid that was on other side of property saw three does... under no pressure. I thought for sure the cold front would get them going strong.

    Its lock down time!! This is a great article for hunting the lock down phase of the rut.http://www.foremosthunting.com/Deer/...eLockdown.aspx
    Is there anything better than being in the woods?!

    Well this happened. Thought it was a decent doe. Turns out it was a button buck with nothing showing. 13 yards shot. 30 yard track job. Only deer all morning.

    I did the same thing last year during gun season. Thought it was a nice doe and when I found it I realized it was a button buck. Someone told me after I shot it that if you see what looks like a doe all by itself then it is typically a button buck. I had never heard that but seems to hold true in this case too. Good news is he still will fill your fridge and you won't waste him.

    I agree 100 percent with that, the does will drive off their fawn if it happens to be a button buck to prevent inner breeding.

    Up at my cabin the deer are pretty thin. Its not too unusual to see a lone doe. But short shot short track job. Butcher work starts after the afternoon hunt

    Well some times things happen,
    I have seen many doe alone, same with buttonbucks its hunting season,
    its not uncommon for a doe to have got killed, by hunter or car, to leave year lying all alone.
    look at like this, smaller deer make for easier dragging out, and hey, can be a lot better eating, so?? Lol .
    so all's well in my book
    congrats on th kill tomorrow should be a great day to be out there , after tonights storm.
