    All my bucks are nocturnal. I've seen one during the day. He was chasing a doe Saturday morning and I couldn't get on him quick enough. The one above is the only day time picture I've gotten of a buck. I stayed in the stand until 11:00 yesterday. Went back at 2:00. They driving me crazy.

    He's a big one for sure. I have another picture of one that looks big but it's so foggy it's hard to tell. These three bucks just came to my place this week. First pictures of them that I've had all year.

    So - bucks still rutting down your way, and bucks up here in many areas of Arkansas have already shed their antlers...

    Yep. It's weird ain't it? Our gun season doesn't close until January 20th. We are about a month behind y'all on our seasons. Ours opens the third week in November and closes the third week in January. We'll have one week of muzzleloader after the gun season.

    Bett Lou, They may not be coming out in that plot in the daylight, but you may catch them staging up nearby just before dark. Have you tried anywhere other than right on the plot?

    My suggestion as well. Find out that travel route and set up for a day or two. Nice looking bucks!

    I haven't sat anywhere else but right there. Your right. :smack: Why in sam hail haven't I thought about that? I could put a climber some where else. I can see 4 plots from that stand but they are somewhere else during the day and I can't figure it out. I have to do something.
