    Anybody else noticed that the deer movement has slown down in their areas. I haven't scene any bucks in the last two weeks. I hunt Greene county and also Edgecombe counties and both counties are producing about the same. I went from seeing bucks on a regular basis to hardely even seeing does. I saw a few bucks chasing the does a few weeks ago but it seems that everything has slowd way down now. I have also noticed that the postings on this sight are way down now too. just seeing if anyone else is experiencing the same

    It has picked up in Franklin County. Bachelor groups have broken up and the chasing has started. We hope to have a good hunt this Saturday.

    Seen 2 absolute SadDaddys today at work just standing behind shop putting horseshoes up for the year and heard a racket in the lower field...Turned and saw about a 120 to 130 8 pointer bust into the field...he was panting so hard the steam was blowing 2 feet in front of him and he stopped and looked back and fellows if ive never seen a world class buck on the hoof...i seen one this morning...They was a GIANT 8 or 10 with some extras about 23 inches inside chasing him with a attitude and i mean chasing for a kill and about that time i believe the smaller one heard my knees hit the ground because i couldn't stand up anymore and looked my way and trotted off with the GIANT in hot pursuit....IT WAS AMAZING...to bad it was inside the city limits, i went about noon and snooped around and there is several rubs close by about the size of a 2 liter drink bottle...did recieve permission to stick camera out from the big man but i know this time of year your going to see bucks you've never seen before and ones you will never see again...Im from West V and ive seen some Jaw-Droppers but that deer was..WOW

    killed one nice buck nov 5th, but the number of deer i have seen in the last week has been way down.my camera still sees them but between 11pm and 3am. its also possible that they are being shot at more now and are a little skiddish.
