    What in the world happened to the dang deer!! I can't seem to see a deer. Anyone else having trouble finding them?

    Same here - up until last Friday, seeing two or three deer a sit and getting four or five pics a day on each game cam (foodplots or trails). Since then, seeing 1 or 2 deer ever couple of days and getting a pic a day. I blame it on the full moon - but not even moving at night.

    Been seeing lots of them after 3:30 in the afternoon but nothing worth shooting.

    All I've seen is a coyote. All I can put together is that the full moon has them moving at night.
     
  6. Plenty to eat+Full moon+rut peaked two weeks ago='s deer are not going to be on their feet near as much during the day........

    Been slow here too. I didn't even want to hunt this afternoon. I washed my truck.

    If you have noticed the last two nights and tonight the moon is unusually bright.

    Hopefully eventually they get hungry again.

    I have not seen anything in the last 2 weeks. All my cam pics are showing 8pm, 1-2am and 4am. They have all gone shifted into night mode in my neck of the woods.

    I have no where to move to, but with y'all seeing that many deer surely you could help a brother out:)

    I've never seen 57 deer in a day maybe in a week of sitting 12 hours a day...that's just nuts! Where on earth are you hunting?

    I didn't see much maybe 1 or 2 up till Monday afternoon. That afternoon seen 7 bucks and 3 doe all at the same time. The bucks were chaseing the three little doe. One took a nap! The second rut kicked in up here they are chaseing the little doe around now.

    Thats a lot of deer to see before noon. I would be a little concerned about all my pine thickets getting browsed into oblivion if I saw that many. I doubt Ive seen that many in the past two years hunting.

    You have got to be kidding me! You guys are seeing nearly 100 deer and bucks chasing...are we even hunting in the same state? I think I would do good at this point to cash out and quit deer hunting all together and stop wasting my time and money to go sit and watch the wind blow!
     
  18. The key to really seeing big numbers of deer is a good lawnchair and a nice dog box.

    I sat from dawn to 10 and from 1:30 to dark and didn't see a deer...I hate that crap guys...it's so discouraging to go sit for hours and not see a dang thing!
