I shot this 10 pt this morning in northern Orange Co. He came in at first light this morning eating on acorns. I was hunting a large oak grove in a big block of woods surrounded by either fields or cutover. The wind was out of the N to NE and perfect for this spot. I knew bucks should be traveling this block of woods looking for does near the cutover. After he milled around for about 5 minutes he walked out from around some small scrub trees and gave me about a 40-45 yard shot. His tarsals were pretty dark and stinky so it appears things are warming up for the rut!
