Is it just my hunting area or have the deer just went away? I was seeing several deer until 3 days ago. Now all of a sudden nothing. I cant figure it out. Could it be because all of the corn is gone now but the neighboring farm still has corn up? anyone else not seeing deer?

I have never seen more deer in my life. This is like hunting a whole new state this year. This whole week has been about as good as any I can recall. Maybe its the recent harvest of corn in your area, cause everywhere I have been has been hot.:dizzy:

bucks could have them corraled in the thicket or the corn next door!

The corn could definitely be the culprit. Also, there are probably more people moving about in the woods as they are preparing for the gun opener. The weather front that just came through probably has an effect also. Good luck!!

havent even seen a deer in 4 days and i been seeing them just about everyday until 4 days ago thought that maybe the warm weather might have made them quit moving but with the cold today still nothing

With this colder weather we have seen the bucks moving between 9am-2pm. It was fun sitting in the first real snow last night. By the time we got out the ground was covered and it was hard to see when driving.

This whole week should be good. I think the moon will screw things up though like usual. I hate the moon during hunting season. They do seem to move more during midday though.

Very slow during traditional hunting hours right now here too. I have notice anot of activity between 10 and 2. Could be the moon thing.
