    Hunted Friday-Sunday in western Pike. Saturday morning was intense! Saw two doe get bred in the wide open, saw two large bucks fight for minutes, and saw probably 8 smaller bucks chasing doe all day. Sunday was opposite though, saw 20+ doe and buck in same wheat field. Bucks were young and were not pressuring does or harrassing them. They all just grazed until I walked out at dark.

    This weekend was slow and so was this morning. Haven't seen anything big on it's feet in daylight. If there is rut activity happening, it's not by me.

    Tonight a Fawn was getting chased in field by a small 8. He chased her into the timber, she came back out with the original buck behind her and then another one. She ran off the field again and righr under my stand with both in tow. She went back in timber deep then came running by me again. The two bucks were quite a ways back. The first went by but seen me. He trotted off still in the direction she went. The other one came by on her exact trail with nose to the ground. A good 5 mi utes passed and I looked behind me to see a large body moving through the brush. I got up and readied for a shot. He had nose to the ground on her trail exactly. I drew when he had his head behind a tree. When he stepped in the open I stopped him and let it fly. He piled up in 35 yards. 157 4/8 12 pt. while fetting him there was chasing going on on the next ridge over. Things are picking up fast.

    Bucks were chasing does yesterday. Had a nice buck come in yesterday morning around 8am it was so thick hardly could see him but made two rubs. Went back this morning to same stand and the only deer I saw was the one I shot, lol. Nice 9pt. I also think this was the same buck I saw morning before making the rubs and came back.
