    Still raining here so I went out and pulled my cam cards. Tons of activity last night with 7 bucks total. Here is the buck I passed last night hoping to get a shot at the big one I saw bed down. He has a big body IMG_0195.JPG

    Leaving for my place in Calhoun this afternoon. Hope to get a quick hunt in this afternoon and dream about what Saturday morning is lining up to be. 20 degree temperature drop and a north wind. Just what I need for one of our best spots.

    D.P.

    Maybe she's tired of the lull.

    So I’m gonna share what I witnessed last night while on stand... had a button buck come in, then what appeared to be mom came right in, to like 10’yards.... he tried to nurse, but she shook him off, then like 2 mins later, he comes up behind her and proceeds to lick her twat for quite some time, pausing to roll his lip up... odd I thought..
    Once he quit, he went over to a sapling and attempted to rub it, jumping up with hoofs and head and everything.
    Bout ten minutes later, doe goes over to what I think was a scrape, squats, and her hind quarters shook and shivered for some time, then she stood up. (Don’t think she peed bc I should have heard it). The button went over to where she squatted, and he postured and appeared to piss on his tarsal glands.
    I’m assuming she is close to being In heat, but thought it was odd she allowed the button to lick as I witnessed. any thoughts?
