he drome don't give up yet its just getting going i had 1 small fork this am come by and then i had a big rack 8 or 10 pt not more the 30yrds from my stand chaseing a doe at 9 30 am had no shoot to my left .This afternoon i saw zip and the 2 other guys i was hunting with had the same afternoon and we sat from 1pm till dark all about a 1/2 mile apart in colliers mills
don't give up! my dad and I hunted the morning and evening today in zone 19 on private land that is usually incredible. This is the first day that both of us didnt see atleast one deer since we started hunting the property.
I have gotten pics of some nice bucks but they only came out at night. I figured I would have to see something being out all day. I think the bucks are very slick and require a seasoned hunter, whereas this is my second season. Its just frustrating that I havent seen anything yet.
scout as much as you can and hunt even more also try to stay in your stand longer in the am and sooner inthe pm if you can some times the night time bucks will move in the middle of the day in the rut good luck ps i scout out new spots and old ones every sunday make sure you where rubber boots and keep your scent down
What part of Manchester? Theres a side entrance to the south part off of route 70, I went scouting there last winter for turkeys, seems like a decent deer area. My problem is I have private land to hunt in lakehurst and the trail cam pics are driving me insane!!!
