I saw a big 8 point near Wakulla Springs chasing a doe on the side of the road at 9am last Friday. Saw a spike yesterday in the same area around 830am. My sister saw a large buck crossing the road at 530 pm yesterday as well. I started seeing fresh scrapes at my hunting club around the state park a couple weeks ago. I think its starting to kick in. I have a quota permit to hunt the Wakulla State Forest this weekend near Wakulla Springs. Might have timed that just right.

On December 22 I grunted in a 8 point and shot him. I thought for sure he would be rutted up and nasty but he wasnít at all. He wasnít in full rut but he defiantly came in because of the grunt call. We havenít seen anything chasing yet but have had some prerut sign since late December. (I'm just east of the st. marks river)
