Jimbo Robinson, a friend and contact in southwest Tennessee, reported that after several days of agonizingly slow movement, deer finally seem to be back on their feet this week. "It's nothing for me to see 30 or more deer when hunting my place in Haywood County, but I went five trips in a row last week without seeing a deer," he said. "No does, no little bucks--nothing. But after that cold front came through, things have picked up."
Fighting:** Now is a great time to rattle because bucks are fighting. Tim sent over a few trail camera pictures Sunday and noted that small bucks, like the two in the photo, have been squaring off and fighting in front of his camera on a regular basis. Chris Ryan, who works for the West Virginia DNR, says that although he hasn't been in the woods himself for several days, he's heard reports of bucks fighting from numerous other hunters.
