Overall activity status: Tuesday's cold front flipped the switch--the past two days have seen a huge uptick in daylight buck activity. I hunted Thursday until about 10 a.m. and saw three little bucks on their feet and cruising. I pulled cards from three trail cameras before coming home, and each camera had captured numerous daylight buck photos over the past two days. Most of the bucks, predictably, were young, such as the one in the photo above, but the surge in activity is encouraging. The photo above was taken at 2 in the afternoon.
