Scrape Making:** Nothing yet. Bucks are concentrating on food and not does. Bachelors groups are still being seen. Deer are feeding on soft mast; persimmons and a few remaining muscadines. Acorns are starting to fall and it appears they are falling earlier than usual likely due to the very dry weather. White, red, and water oaks are dropping in Georgia. "They're eating persimmons like crazy," reports Mississippi's Steve McKenna of McKenna Ranch.
Chasing:** Nothing going on rut-wise. Bucks are still being seen together, says Water Valley Lodge's Jake Utsey.
Daytime Movement:** Very little. Bucks are still nocturnal, according to Daniel & David Barnett at Wildlife Farms in Arkansas.
Estrous Signs:** Nothing yet.
