Reports from friends in the region indicate the hunting has been slow so far. The biggest complaint is that while bucks are showing up on camera, it’s always after hours. They act like vampires, not deer. As for me, I’m seeing the same faces every time I check my cameras. Small bucks and does only, nothing bigger than 110 inches. By contrast, at this time last year I tagged a 150-class stud and saw two others almost as big. I have seen two solid mule deer bucks, both mature and big enough for most rednecks anywhere, so I can’t whine too much. I may spend the next week hunting mule deer since whitetails seem so uncooperative.
