Bucks starting to play in Vermont

My Dad got out for the last time in Vermont on Saturday before the season ended.  To that time, he hadn't seen any bucks, and no real buck sign.  He just called me from the field this morning.  He had gone into the woods to throw up some camo around a couple of his stands in preparation for the rifle season. 

He said he got to the back adge of the little orchard he hunts, and right on the logging road were 2 big scrapes, and one of them had a licking branch over it that was all broken up.  He is slightly happy now....Yes

Still got a couple weeks till opening day, but they're starting to show up.

Good for him. I bet the

Good for him. I bet the discovery of those scrapes is getting him all pumped up. Is he planning on hunting those specific scrapes at all? Are you going to be able to get out there and hunt with him? Sounds like he has got some sleepless nights ahead of him. The anticipation is just all part of the game. Good luck to him and you will have to keep us posted on how is hunt turns out.

Yes, he actually hunts right

Yes, he actually hunts right where the scrapes are.  The one that is 12 yards from his stand has certainly got him going.  And, with the big 12 pointer that has supposedly been lurking, he's all set.  Youth weekend this week, and then rifle opener on the 13th.Thumbs up
