Scouting

A friend went scouting last week here in East Ky. and came back with a great report. He drove a country road between 7:30 and dusk and saw 80+ deer with some good bucks in that number. All of these deer were in fields picking in grass. He said that the does, fawns and bucks were already running together and I think it is too early for the so called social groups to be breaking up and bucks begining to herd does . I"d appreciate more knowledgable info on this. We had a late freeze here which killed most of the oak bloom so acorns will be scarce. Most hunting will probably be done in open fields. Thanks, Chuck <><

Sounds to me like you have a real good food source there and all the deer are attracted to it. Don't think they will start breaking up for another 3-4 weeks.

I hear ya Ca_V. it's an awesome spot to hunt! My lease is about 1/2 a mile from a river & there's lots of hardwoods & alf alfa in the area. The bucks on my lease are mowing down the farmers soybeans so he ain't to happy about the number of deer. I'll try & help him with that little problem come Oct 1st! Big smile
