This thread has been fun over the years and keeps me fired up when I am stuck at work. 60 years old and still feel like a kid waiting for season and especially the rut to come! Got this guy on camera but need to get back and put out more minerals as sightings have dropped to almost zilch! God willing I will be in a tree this Fall! Hope everyone here has a great season!!

Bucks arent as interested in the minerals after they come out of velvet....Instead, hang a licking branch over a mock scrape. Thatll get him back on cam

Just put in my vacation. I try to spread it out as I’ve seen better movement the first week some years and better movement the second or third week of November other years. As of right now I’m off Nov. 2,3,5,6,9,10,11 and obviously the weekends that fall between those dates. I’ve got 7 more days to use after that so I may schedule some more days

It's almost time !! Feel like a kid waiting on Xmas. It's going to be a warm weekend, so not planning on taking any doe. As of now, wind is not looking good Saturday morning for the spot I wanted to hunt. Good to have options with 18 stands.

Heading to Wayne National for the weekend for a camping bow hunt, don't really care if going to be warm. Just to get away from my wife for the weekend is worth the gas money.

Saw someone with Vermont plates in Knox county today with three or four mineral blocks, a feeder, and a couple bags of deer corn in the back of a truck.

I find bait piles in Wayne National all the time, which is illegal. Non residents show up every year to hunt Wayne with a truck load corn. I turned a guy into the game warden a few years ago that was illegally driving his ATV into Wayne hunting over bait and had a dozen empty beer cans under his tree, not sure if the warden followed up but what a POS that guy had to be.

Has anyone noticed the Oaks dropping acorns heavy yet? Haven’t been to southern Ohio for a few weeks so hoping there’s a good crop when I arrive this weekend.

There aren't many on the oaks on the properties I hunt in SE Ohio.

Here in Carroll County , we have a ton of acorns this year, especially white oaks. Should have the deer up and feeding first and last few hours of the day.
