Now that I think back, I'm not sure that I even saw any doe that appeared hot this season.  It certainly seems like the rut clock is a bit behind schedule... :dunno:

I also hunted Mason the full two weeks of Modern with cams up still for Late season and have yet to see a hot doe. Got my fingers crossed I can tag one of the two bucks I have on camera cruising through.
I laugh in the face of Danger. Ha ha ha Danger Face!

Checked my apple tree cams today.  Doe still wandering around with kids.  Five different bucks through the back yard in the middle of suburbia, all seem to be just scent checking and eating an apple or two.  No daylight activity at all.  I think it's going to explode in the next four or five days and bucks will be running to and fro.

We have a spot 1/4 mile from my house that always holds deer in an old orchard. The kids and I drive there frequently to watch deer, I use this spot as my bellwether. We have seen several does accompanied by younger bucks the last week. Normally we’d see a mature buck at this time, things should be popping off soon. In 2013 I had a quality blacktail tag, we didn’t get into heavy rutting activity until the 10th of November that year.

Agreed.  Down here, there's typically only one day per year when the big bucks are out walking around in broad daylight - somewhere close to 12 November.  How the doe all (or nearly all) end up being fertile at the same time each year has year always amazed me.. Estrus is said to be driven by photoperiod.  When I Google sunrise/sunset times for each day in Nov.,the days are shortening by 2 minutes per day, one minute later sunrise in the am. and one minute later in the evening.  Moon phases change in relation to date each year yet the overall population of doe estrus eriods converge in the next few days.

I got to watch it all play out from the window by my desk today. Out in one of the orchards there were two bucks, two does and two fawns in constant motion. Posturing, chasing and fighting. In the end both bucks left with a doe. In the last three days I've had six different bucks on the orchard camera but all the action has been after dark, today it was in broad daylight. The trail camera caught some of the action.

He's not trolling you - he's mocking you

Did you ever notice that the biggest critics of formal education have little of it?

Cloaking ignorance and bigotry in an elementary school understanding of scripture doesn't change the fact that it's ignorance and bigotry.
