Went in the woods first time this evening to check one of my stands. Saw 3 scrapes, not feeding scrapes either. All three were under Holly trees with licking branch over head. Anyone else seeing scrapes. Don't think I've ever seen them this early.

Odd, but I'm seeing other things I think are early here as well. Many trees are turning. It isn't drought stress either. We've had plenty of rain. Hard horns started showing up earlier than usual this year as well.

It's about the right time for them.

I have seen more velvet free bucks early this year than ever before. I had one before Sep1st this year.

And the maples are starting to turn as of a few days ago. That seems oddly early too.

Found one right in the middle of the only trail in to one of my stands last Saturday. I'll just straddle it with my ATV and hope they come back.
