hunted from pretty much Dec 21 to Jan 6 every day minus Christmas Eve and Day and had some bad weather heavy rain days etc of course but man this year has just been terrible for me as far as seeing deer. Plenty sign just not seeing em. Only managed to get one good one in that span and was the only 1 good buck I saw actually hunting not counting a couple just crossing a road. Of course I came home last night back to work today and suddenly they running everywhere dad and brother both killed bucks today already. One I did get was a 9 point that had some good character with a big bladed brow tine that I don't think you can see in the pics but it's about 3 inches wide and big kicker point but both his 3s were broken off. Not much tine length though even on the intact ones but beams are long and tall. Big deer at 198lbs. Very little sign of any rutting activity at all yet still which is odd they should be rolling from Christmas to about now and start slowing down but it still seems like its just getting started. necks barely swole and not stinking at all yet still. Bucks that we have killed still loaded with fat have not rutted down any at all yet. Really odd.
