I hunted last weekend too, southern part of the county. Saw all bucks still running together, no does or fawns. No shooters for me in person or on the cameras. I saw one older 6 point way outside the ears that easily meets AR. Hoping it is a 6 only because of the drought and makes it to be something better next year. Seeing some spikes as well. The rains filled all the dry tanks and creek back up. There are no acorns or native pecans left to drop, and no wheat was planted in the area I hunt, so EVERYTHING is hitting feeders hard. We always see nice bucks around the rut that we never see before or after, so I am not as discouraged as that report sounds. Better will show.
