Buck activity seems to have slowed down, bucks i once seen all hours of the day are now primarily nocturnal, they walk under my stand before daylight too dark to shoot, or right at or after dark sticking tight to the cutover, havent had a deer bust me, just dont understand why their so hard to pattern now, when a month before bow season, 3 bucks in the food plot at mid day..

I'll send you a tracking number as soon as you paypal my account.

I don't know about where you live but the fun should start anytime now. The first week of November is prime time for the bucks to start lookin an chasing does. It's a good time to spend all day on the stand.

I would be moving my stand.

I dont sit to many days that I dont see deer.

But figure its just Oct and the fun begins Nov 1.

Thumbs up Its Hard to Say!

Because none of us here on this site is hunting with you its really hard to say what might be going on. But from experience here are some things to consider. Hunting the same stand day after day is very difficult unless you take all the precautions to elimate your scent profile. Bucks right now are getting ready for the first rut activity, and the bachleor type buck groups will be dissapearing. Have you paid close attention to wind, have you been busted and maybe not real sure. In our neck of the woods the distant blow from an old mature doe will alert the deer that she has winded you, sending up the danger signal to all the deer in the area. After that its only night time activity or very cautious movement by day. The last two years I have personally been using scent control products and clothing, and keeping it a scent tight bag. I use a Primos bow sling and then spray that down. I have had deer spot me in the tree but without the good nose full of HUMAN STINK, they return to feeding. Just a few thinks to think about good luck Buddy!

Seems as if the Buck activity has slowed down in Southeastern Kentucky, at least until last night I hope it picks up for you.
