    This buck on the right is the one ive got on my trailcam.
    Hoping to catch him off guard and get him soon-- been hunting like crazy. Every time I hear a gunshot It makes me cringe thinking someone else could get this.
    From the picture he appears identical to the one I took last year

    A comment titled: Corn for all in response to a report titled: Corn

    Thought I might chime in on the topic.

    I constantly get pictures of mature bucks eating on corn piles, but they are all at night. I have killed my biggest buck eating on a corn pile. The november rut is the best time to hunt a corn pile because does will come on it which can draw in a love struck buck. As for the rest of the season it is my belief that bucks will not come on a corn pile during the day. That does not mean they will not stay close though. I like to position myself on trails coming from bedding areas onto corn piles. Sometimes I will be far enough away from the pile that it is out of sight. That is just my thoughts but take it with a grain of salt because Ive killed 1 buck in the last 3 years.. either im being too picky or have hit a dry spell. Happy hunting

    A comment titled: thief in response to a report titled: Thief in the woods in Caswell Co.

    a good friend of mine had his ATV stolen out of the back of his pickup where he was hunting in Chatham Co. Its a shame that this stuff happens but I believe that the people who steal hunting stuff are other hunters, which is even worse for our sport.

    A comment titled: dont stop in response to a report titled: ready to give up

    ive been in your shoes and am frustrated this year has been strange, but one thing i always remember is it only takes 5 seconds and a big buck can be standing right in front of you broadside ready to go up on the wall and in the belly.

    also lay low and let the woods have a few days rest. your deer may feel pressured. i hadnt seen any deer at my south stand and didnt go into my south stand for a week and then today i went out this morning and saw 7 does (the most ive seen all season) and saw the 3 big body does that i needed during the rut. second rut is coming up and if you lay low for a few times they may get more comfortable coming into your area.

    but what do i know you could always quit and take up basket weaving instead
