Went out yesterday morning just for fun.. already tagged out..
Didn't see anyone hunting the spots I checked.
Saw a doe chasing a spike ... guessing it was momma opening up a can for bad behavior :chuckle:
And saw a three generation group of doe's feeding without a care in the world...not much for active buck tracks on the normal roads.

I went out Monday to my property in Willipa Hills to see if I could find any action.  Zip!  A few rubs but nothing moving.

In the backyard, the bucks recorded on 05 and 08 Nov. were the last ones moving that I caught.  Strangely, one of the bucks decided to rip up my Orcas Pear tree.  Damn near girdled/killed it.  The second week of November seems really late for rubbing.  Sadly, the cam covering than angle had dead batteries for four days.  I didn't catch that action.

Rub on the pear tree - can't capture all the damage 'cause it wraps around 270 degrees around the five-inch diameter stem. 


Just in time for Late Buck - last night, the four point returned a full 14 days after his last visit.  He checked out a doe and a fawn for a minute or two and apparently unsatisfied, moved on to greener pastures.

Seen several doe alone the past few days. No bucks except for the one that I shot. But he wasn't chasing a doe.

Buck I shot on Friday was grunting pushing a doe and fawn through the reprod, not smelly or swollen but it was the first time I've heard a blacktail grunting.
