I was out today in zone 5 and saw a herd of 10-12 deer go by at about 60 yards. All flatheads. Nothing came in to range.

Then when I got home from hunting, I heard some commotion in my yard and up in the woods. I grabbed a spotlight and saw 12 (11 flatheads and a spike) deer in my yard, just about to enter the woods and heard the sound of at least 3-4 more up in the woods.

Seems odd that they'd be herding up already, doesn't it?

I was out in zone 2 yesterday with a youth hunter and we had a small herd of about 5 or 6 does come through. I wasn't sure if that was just the area we were in or if they were starting to herd up already.

Yes. I recall the days of 20-30 deer hanging out together, etc and days of hunting where I'd see 50-60 deer.

These places (the property I hunted on and my own property) have not had any large groups on them yet this year. Before today, the largest group I'd seen at either place was 6
