My most recent scouting drive through northwest Pennsylvania, Wednesday, revealed several deer feeding in fields during mid-afternoon, where manure has been spread. They were too far away to see antlers, and I could not stop to glass them. I saw only one buck while driving a nearly impassable dirt road along the edge of a swamp. It was on the trail of a doe. It was not a big buck; its antlers were just tall spikes. But its neck was very thick and it was not slender in the waist, indicating that it may have been at least a couple years older than the spike antlers might indicate. This happened about 1-1/2 weeks after the primary rut peak.
