Today is October 27th and it is on! Wednesday’s rain and low pressure backed by cold northwest winds on Thursday triggered something in the deer woods. I did some speed scouting Friday popping in and out of some of my favorite food plots and what a difference a few days makes. Scrapes are ripped up, food sources are getting pounded, and deer are on their feet. All fall so far my cameras have been luke warm at best…getting a few pictures of good bucks but pretty sporadic at best. I put my cameras on scrapes about 3 weeks ago. They blew open this Thursday and into Friday as the front moved through the mid-west. I said earlier that with the drought, if you re-planted in green for this fall it would pay dividends…well it has.
My interior green plots are getting ripped up right now—you can see evidence of rutting activity centered around these food sources. If you have a green interior plot—get on it and sit all day!
