Been in tree stands Monday and Tuesday and now this morning and have not see any deer. Acorns dropping everywhere. Squirrels making tons of racket all around me.
Trail cams showing some really nice bucks but mostly after dark.
Acorns are abundant and I know some will say find the acorns, you’ll find the deer.
Anyone been seeing any deer while in your tree stand or blind? I know they may not be at a standstill but they’re not showing up by me.

I went Sunday to the farm and didn't see any. I sat in a food plot and all that came from that was it looked good with a ton of tracks.

Seen 4 last night while cutting grass at the house. They were in my food below.

Sure if your hunting ol' trusty field edge stand, yeah your not going to see much. If your hunting rut style pinch points and funnels, then yes its going to be slow. If your hunting over a scrape made a week ago, then yes. If you're mobile and hunting bedding theres no such thing as a lull. Deer don't just dissappear. Tactics change as deer change patterns. I don't believe in or see a Lull, because I change tactics and hunt bedding.

I believe people that have finite places to hunt try to stay out of the bedding until November

Deer often times bed right where they eat when they're building fat reserves or are trying to conserve energy in the late season. Trying to sneak into a bedding area, with bedded deer is going to prove fruitless. Deer just don't move very far this time of year, thus the reason for labeling the period as lull.

That said, I'm quite confident, I could put myself in a position to get a shot on a doe most evenings if I wanted to shoot a doe.

i came back to do just that and worked all day on those projects.
At about 4:00 I somehow convinced myself I need to get back out there, wind and all because thundershowers are coming and temps are going to drop and they might move around before the storms.
Sitting in a tree, enjoying the moment!....I think I have an addiction......oh well, worst thing that could happen is nothing!

It's not an addiction. I prefer to call it a passion:rockon:
