    The bucks are moving durring the day light hrs. Just the few minuts of start of daylight and then again mid day soem time and then they start to move again rt befor dark.


    They just are not bedding down by where you are setting up to hunt them.


    This year with the abundance of acorns in the woods the deer dont ahve to move fare from food sorce to bedding spot. Often tehy bed amonst the acorns they eatting.


    But not to worry the bucks will start a chasing the does today. And it will be good for teh next week then we go threw the lull period just intime for the few days befor gun season.

    Quit huntin the bucks & start hunting the does. If you know where the does wanna be, you'll find the bucks in daylight hours. Just watched 2 dandies pushing momma & triplets around the timber. I was in an area where I can always count on seeing at least half dozen does.
