Saw a nice 3 pt briefly chasing a doe down the side of I5 by Stanwood about 1:00 today! They were moving!

Wierd day in Mason,  Suddenly all the doe are out and moving around pretty much all day.  Lots of browsing around and just hanging out in the sun.  Lots of fawns near moms and  a lot of yearlings all moving in groups of two or three. I saw somewhere between 9 and 14 breeding age doe,  THey were moving aruund enough that it was hard to keep track of them.  None apperaed hot.  Much movement at 0815 - 1000, then again at 1:00 pm. 

I didn't see any bucks that I can confirm.  Saw a big bodied animal crossing the street onto the property at 5:00 PM, but no idea what the sex was.  I had to move 100 yard to try to find it in the brush but no luck. A few minutes later, I'd switched sides of the property to try to cutt off that aminal I'd seen  - again no luck.  Moved deeper in to the property and found a deep brown doe hangin' solo, doing nothing al all other than just standing out in the open.  Crept in to 75 yards or so and killed 20 minutes watching.  I was thinking I might have a golden ticket, then two more doe jumped out of the timber and join her.The all go into the cut and bed down there until last light came and went. 

Drove back to vacation house where I"m staying and fournd a doe and fawn in my drive when I turned in.  That kiind of day.

There was a city buck rut fest yesterday. 3x3 and 3x4 sized each other up quite a few times but never saw them get after it. 2x3 was on a hot doe and wouldn’t let the other bucks near here. All in all there were 7 bucks here within 50-75 yards. 3 spikes, 2pt, 3pt, 3x4 and the big 2x3.
They is where you aint and you aint where they is.

I had the same problem Buck Rub Jr had. All the bucks seem to hit the yards and none of them in the woods.

Slow in Mason this AM.  Two shots heard, saw two doe at 10:00.  Windy from every direction.  Hit the Elevated blind in Kitsap this afternoon.  Couple of shots heard in the last 30 minutes of light,othewise nothimg moved.  Frustrating day.

I took a dandy one this afternoon. I was watching a doe and the guy came in behind her and started ripping on some apple trees. He was just plain pissed off and neck was swollen pretty good. Two other bucks on my camera from yesterday were pretty fired up too.

Walked my granddaughter across the road to her friend's house yesterday evening (10/30/21) for a Halloween party.
I stayed for a cold one and manned the campfire in the pit on their deck. Shortly after dusk, a buck chased a doe across their yard.

Took a buddy out this morning, got his first BT. Big old old old 2 pt. Teeth worn almost to gums. Beastly body. Full blast rut, rubbing trees and peeing all over himself. 448.
