    i think they are still nocturnal for the most part... still gotta catch them early and late. but from what i saw this weekend the rut is coming up here very soon!

    I am seeing good bucks on their feet mid day already and I hunt in northern Mercer county...real close to the IA line.

    Have a bruiser on camera at 10:31 am on 10-29, but really it just depends on the farm either place may be the best to go.
