neener! Inoticed this year that bucks up hear were hitting scrapes and rubs hard after the main rut had come and gone you can usely count about 30 days the does that didnt breed come in. but hunting pressure really moves it around a lot because you can tell when doe season opens the different in the size of young ones.
