Overall Activity Status: Here on the Great Plains, both the fields and my inbox have been very quiet recently. It seems the reduced deer populations resulting from this fall's extreme EHD outbreak has also put a damper on the enthusiasm of the region's hunters. I've had several tell me they planned on purposely eating their doe tags due to the low numbers of deer in their respective areas. Still, there are a few guys who aren't afraid to get out there and give it one last shot this year. From what I've been hearing, those hardcore hunters can expect to see signs of a secondary rut this weekend, as does that didn't get bred last month cycle back into estrus.
