Around 1am Wednesday at work in the western edge of the Washougal unit I saw 2 bucks and 3 does. Both bucks necks were getting pretty thick. One was hanging off to the side and the other was chasing one or two of the does around. all within 30 yards of me at the time. Pretty cool to watch as they didnt seem to care I was there. Both bucks were on the young side for this area. Couldnt quite be completely sure of antler size as I didnt have that great of light. But both were in the class I call "pretty good size forky or smaller 3pt"
The whole time I could hear one of the deer continuously making a faint short grunt type noise. Never actually heard first hand a blacktail vocalizing. Knew they did, just never heard it first hand. Really was a pretty cool thing to watch. Also torturous at the time as the area I have been hunting is only 1/2 mile or so down the road and was FULL of does several days ago.
Getting out this morning through Sunday morning. So hope the rut action keeps going.

Unfortunately I'm all in on this guy...or bust... he's guna be pissing off the local Forester though... he's hammering healthy 8-10" cedar trees... :chuckle: there's well over 20 tree's like this in a qrtr mile sq area... fortunately he's wise so the pursuit has been fun. I think he's locked down with a doe right now ..so will see.

Have any game cam pics of him?  Not asking you to show them, just a yes or no.  More interested if you are choosing to go all in on him based off of his rubs or off a pic/seeing him.

I’m not a deer meat fan, so the older I get the more I trophy hunt for deer. Saw a good, tall 4x3 today, not sure what he was up to but he stood like a statue for at least 1/2 hour.  I grunted at him and he just turned his head, I’m guessing he was in the rut but surprised he wasn’t moving more.

Bucks are starting to move on my camera. Morning and evening activity seems to be the trend.
