checked my cams tonight.

bunch of bachelor  groups at two of my better sanctuaries .

One spot has had 7 bucks coming in, now 4 of those are flat tops, and 1 has one side left.

the other 2 are still holding 

of course the biggest buck I had on cam is one of them to shed early .

Hopefully no one shoots him thinking he is a big doe , as he should really be a great buck this fall

It's crazy, I have spots similar to yours with most bucks shed that I have on cam. I just pulled a camera off a reopened scrape that showed 8 different bucks all with antlers and showing "rut" activity.

That's a nice buck Hammer, if he gets shot as a doe that would be a damn shame.

Nice Dan. I found a rub today that was still green. Some are going to hold for a while

Hopefully they hold until Saturday, which will be my last hunt of the season

Yes indeed, there is still time....Took my son on stand tonight. The same 5 pointer he passed up last week with the 220 came into 35 yards again. He chose to let him go saying he wanted to wait for the 8 pointer that we know is around.....Still some time, you never know!  


That buck is going to be a slammer next year hammer4reel :up:

I saw a real nice buck last night still holding, but if you are planning on shooting a large doe now use binoculars first to make sure it is a doe.
