I've only been out a couple times. No cruising yet. Hoping that will change any day.

Reading all these reports about mature bucks cruising has me scratching my head.
Been doing all day sits for over a week. I haven't seen a single good buck cruising .or even a small buck trying to chase in either my NJ or PA spots.
Seeing lots of does daily. And few small bucks.
Definitely nothing to write home about.
And of the dozen bucks or so I'm seeing not one has been hocked up yet.

.

Same here, a couple 110"-120" chasing a bit but thats it. My area has alot of does though, i dont usually see the big boys until the first wave of breeding is done and the mature boys got to look for receptive does instead of just grabbing one of the many as they walk by during the first phase. My action seems to heat up when guys start posting that the rut is over
I've hunted with many a dog but never found one that would do it all until i met... The Boykin

Just got back from Ohio - I should have shot the 125" buck that came by me on the first morning before the 80 degree weather set in....  Just checked my two main observation cams in NJ and it's the same bucks I had since July...  Lots of action - nothing to shoot.   (young bucks only)

. Got these guys by us Jack. I actually though the giant 6 I shot was the funky 11 pt. Till I finally recovered him. Those long main beams and the single tine through me off. Never had the giant 6 on cam till I shot him. But that 9 & the 11 are still in cam. Actually thinking of getting a muzzy tag for the first time in 5 years.
