    The time is near. Some of the big boys are getting a little frisky. They also are only showing there heads at night. The only good thing is, that when in a tree stand I have been seeing a bunch of doe's, you all know what happens soon. I have been trying to put one on the wall with the Barnett Crossbow, Quad AVI 400 awesome bow, I guess just to say that I did. I have been seeing a bunch of big rubs, these are the biggest I have seen here in NC since I moved here in 2004. Also a bunch of very large scrapes, bigger that usual. I'm starting not to sleep well and neck is getting fatter, must be the rut is very near. As you all can see I love to hunt, or should I say I livetohuntnc!!! My Wife thinks that I'm nuts, she could be right. By the way they are falling from the oaks fairly well right now, that's where you probably will find me, 25ft up. Best of luck to you all. Thank you for the warm welcome.

    GOOD LUCK LTHNC, I tell ya Buddy, I have such a place that I'm steering clear off for this reason also...I'm keeping the Does happy and staying Low-Key Until the time is Right. I could have took a few Does from this stand but just feel it's my best spot for a decent Buck so I don't want to booger it up. Sounds like your in the HOT seat..Good Luck!! and You shouldn't worry worry your wife thinks your Crazy or maybe you should because I have been through 2 marriages and both ended with Hunting and Fishing too much tossed in there somewhere LOL.....We are addicts!!!!

    Some more Pi's
    Yes the obsession is overwhelming. The only problem is I don't see it. Here is a couple more pic's of some others that have been visiting that area. The dates on camera are messed up but they are all this season. The one I'm really interested in, I have only seen him once on camera. The video is very dark, but he is a big one. Much bigger that these pic's, much wider and taller, very nice rack, at least a 10 just not sure. I do think I know where he is bedding, just not sure of that either. It is killing me to stay away but I don't want to bump him out, you all know what happens when they get seeing us to often. I think he is bedding about 200 yds away from where these pic's are taken. I will get in there early Muzzle loader season, yes opening day, then just hope for some luck. This buck has walked in on me 3 times 6:15am. He stays about a minute, then walks off. I can make out it is him, just on body size, very big body. Looks like the weekend is best for deer activity, Sunday and Monday look really promising. Have a good day.

    Those are some good bucks LTHNC!! I know what you mean and my wife thought I was nuts about bowhunting until she shot one for the first time. Unfortunately she will have to wait until turkey season before she gets to try her bow I bought her out. She is 7.5 months pregnant so no practicing for her lol...
