 Just got home from 4 days in the field...we saw probably 16-18 different bucks.
Connected on 3.
The two biggest are still alive.
Major chasing going on. This is a good week to be in the woods.

Went out last Tuesday and rattled in a spike and a 3x3 within an hour. (Filled tag on Nov 9- was just showing a student how to do rattle setups).  The last 5 days of season can be good, in units open until Dec 1.

I ended up killing a young 3x4 that I grunted in.  He would have been a 4x4 if he hadn't busted off a tine.  I getting quite a few bucks on camera out crusing the last few days and nights.  Yesterday had a small forkhorn out wandering around middle of the morning in an open field.

Was on the WA side of the line for late muzzy last weekend and turned up 11 bucks, a couple real nice ones. Finding bucks wasn't hard, finding them on land I could hunt was. Made a couple good stalks but didn't get one in muzzy range. Bucks were cruising hard; first time I have ever wished deer would be less active.

Interestingly I really did not see any bucks with does. Just loners cruising.

Itís turning off like a light switch in my area. I took my young daughter out every day last week. (I deserve an award for patience 😂). We started the week seeing a dozen plus bucks a day and ended it yesterday only seeing one. Iíd say the full moon is part of it but the rut is also winding down it feels like.
