Hey, fellow blacktail hunters - figured I'd start up this thread again. Don't have any findings to report yet but I'll post when I do. Feel free to do the same, good luck out there!!

Saw a med size 3 chasing a doe this morning.  A spike and small fork were cruising around the area yesterday. This in 624.
Saw a buck with a group of does in 602 a few days earlier, but not quite rut behavior other than out in daylight and with a small herd of does.

All quiet down here.  I was reviewing old vids on my phone.  I caught a nice forkie in full chase of a doe on 19 Oct. a couple years ago.

Taking my son out to hunt reprod Saturday.  Low expectations, but as they say, you can't kill 'em on your couch.  Good luck all.  Hope we see some early action.

Starting to see some bucks out during the day on whidbey. It usually starts earlier here than most places, but it seems to be starting up, a little. Good luck all

Got a stud 2x2 around my place. His neck is swollen now. He ripped up my young butternut tree several days ago. I think I can salvage it but he sure did a number on it. He will be a good breeder buck for sure.

In the last week we went from four local does and no bucks to 2 spikes, 4 fork horns, and 2 three points. The multi branch are cruising trying to establish their pad. The big ole boys will come out soon. Flat out stupid is a good week away.

Hmmm.... That's a super nice buck  but in my mind, that looks more like a killer Blacktail rather than a small version of a solid Muley.  He's not massively wide (just a bit outside the ears) but does have relatively long tines that might suggest Muley as well.  It looks a lot like those BT bucks that come from the Eugene, OR area . The location of this particular buck would complete the story.  Those eyeguards are awesome either way.

He’s a Puyallup buck!

I saw a buck walking by my house a week ago.  Then yesterday at 5 pm I saw a buck nose to the ground, walking behind a doe in the yard next to my driveway.

I've never seen bucks this early around my house.  I see deer year round - mostly does and kids.

Usually I see bucks just about every day during the first two weeks of November.

I think he was being facetious. Saying it was a large BT.
