What are the deer doing in your part of the woods

Here in Norteastern Pa. I only seen deer the first week, Passed on a nice 6 pointer the first day. Seen another small 6 & a few doe, 3 bear & a fisher. Scrape activity stopped (leaves over them) & no chasing yet. Our weather has been terrible here, Rainy & Very Windy for the most part!!!!

Re: What are the deer doing in your part of the woods

Sounds like northwestern PA to a T so far...least my hill in it. Calling for colder temps, possible snow and a calendar flip all within the next week so if that does not trigger anything, I am going to get worried.

Nothing but does and 1.5ers spotted here so far.

I am pretty much canning the morning and evening hunt type day from here on out...now it is just hunt whenever I can in daylight.

Hunting Friday and Saturday with hopes something triggered while I have been working.

Haven't seen a mature buck since the first week of the season. Was skunked for the first time this week. The deer are hiding. Another week and the activity will increase.

God Bless the USA.

Re: What are the deer doing in your part of the woods

This is without doubt, the WEIRDEST season in probably 15 years for me. I have seen a whopping 2, count em 2 deer all season long in areas that perenially have me tagged out on a big doe and in hot pursuit of a couple bucks already. 99% of the activity I'm seeing since the opener till now is around 6:30 am (DARK) and just after legal light (DARK again). I'm sure they'll get going soon but I fear a very late rut this year...

Re: What are the deer doing in your part of the woods

Not seeing deer because there is no acorn crop this year. I see lots of deer standing along the roads and fields, but nothing in the woods. The trail cam in my yard is only getting night pictures. I found a large scrape the other day so I'll probably sit on that a few days.

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.
