    Hey guys,

    Have any of you noticed a decline in doe sightings this season. The hunting seems dead right now. Really seems to be a unusual year this season. Maybe my area of Chatham County is receiving too much hunting pressure. Thinking of going to thicker cover and hunt possible trails.

    Hey Huntinbucks...Deer are acting weird here in Davidson Co also...Seen 13 one evening and sat same stand next evening....DEAD AS DISCO...Not even a squrriel....I think the Rut is happening now...I know of 3 bucks (My Sunday Bow Kill included)that came to calls in the last few days and my friends say their bait is just laying there untouched.

    Does
    Yes, I have noticed in the past three weeks that the does are absent. Really not seeing anything as of last saturday. Seen corn piles untouched on my brothers stand. Have not seen any chasing yet. I am not sure if main rut has ahppened yet. Will be back in woods on friday.

    What part of Chatham are you hunting? I live at the edge of bonlee and me and my uncle have seen over 10 does everytime we have been hunting. The buck i shot was with a group of 5 does when i shot

    I am hunting by Bennett. We are a still hunting club with 12,000 acres in several counties nearby. Will be hunting again in AM and Friday, Saturday. Hope things improve. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    HAppy Thanksgiving!
    Bucks have got the does rounded up. Find them and find the bucks. Gets like this every year around this time. That's when I chop my way into think creek bottoms. Good luck!
