    Welcome to the area and welcome to the site... If you havnt heard and if not im sorry to say there are no more deer in Pender county...They all headed up north. lol. No but really it usually around the beginning of Nov but I think it will be more like the end of Oct.... And I have also been seeing alot of rub scrap activity already also and I do most of my hunting in Pender County. So good luck and keep us posted on any kills.....

    I would pay most attention to the last week of this month and FIRST TWO WEEKS OF NOVEMBER for some of the exciting hunting. With the temps cooling down now it may be here a little eariler this season. If you get the chance hunt every day of November that you can. Good luck!

    Will that is one of my bookmarks but dont live by it and im sure you know that... With the sign I have been seeing and next week its going to get cold around here on top of the moon. I would be in the stands 24 7 this weekend and for the next couple weeks. But thats just what I think.

    well I have hunted twice and the bucks are definetly getting worked up. I watched a year and a half old six pointer chase a do all over a corn field for the last 30 min of light. She was not really responding to him but not running him off either. I put a camera up on a scrape and got pictures of bucks and does using it. I have 5 different bucks coming to it as wll as several groups of does. the does are just passing by though not really anything else. It is deffinetly close. I expect the chasing to start here in the next week. Prob not heavy chasing but a few does coming into estrus and full blown rut within two weeks based on what I have seen.
