What Gmu tag and weapon?
Good for you. I’m just looking for a buck also at this point. If it’s got horns it’s going down.

Ended up shooting a little two point this morning.  First buck I have seen so far during the permit season.  Not the buck I was hoping for, but was a good morning in the woods all in all.

just checked yard cams - no bucks in the last two days.  .  Local rut appears to be done.  That timing is consistent with every other year I've put cams out.    I have little hope to see any more come in this season.  Bummer.

There was a buck with a doe in my back yard two days ago, but did not see much of anything yesterday, does or bucks. I'll be checking my trail cameras today though.

Still happening in Snohomish County.  Just had a 3x4 with 3 does in my yard this morning.

If you would have seen the hole he was in you would see why he's built like that...he was 300ish yds away when I took that pic...his antlers don't match his body that's for sure

He looks like he's got six to eight years on that body - huge!. 

Great photo!  How did you say you take those again?  What optics/camera?

First daytime buck I have seen around here. 

About 9:30 this morning, not a care in the world.

Thanks!  You get great results with a phone on the Vortex optics.     

Just checked yard cam.  Four-point from a few nights ago came in at 6:30 PM - about six hours earlier than I'd expect to see a buck in the yard.  He must be searching hard to be here that early.  Several does in the yard last night at midnight too.  Seems to be an atypical year when compared to the past.  Hope it lasts a few more days.

It takes a little getting used to but it works good for me  :tup:
