    What is everybody's prediction about how good the gun season will be this year?

    I'm already seeing a lot of action on the AA hwy. Increased number of deer hit is always a good indication of bucks cruising or chasing doe.Have also seen a couple of bucks, nice ones, that you could tell there necks where swollen.

    Lol, none taken on that side of the farm that I know of. You need the people below you to put some pressure on them and push them up to you (and us).

    Just finished putting up a new ladder stand today for crossbow season. Typically have hunted out of ground blinds in previous years.

    I have more deer activity at my feeder in daylight hours than I ever have since I've been hunting Boone Co. I'm seeing a ton of does and at least 3 shooter bucks consistently. I think Saturday is going to be a great morning in the woods.

    Hopefully this cooler weather stays around. It was uncomfortably warm this past weekend. I'll still be pulling a string this weekend, not sure if I will ever go back to gun hunting.

    I’ve been in the stand for 3 days now and have seen nothing. Unusually slow for this farm.

    Deer harvest was way down for my crowd this weekend. 1 decent 10 and a below average 8. didn't really even see that many.

    That's disappointing to hear, I really thought that opening weekend would have been better this year.

    I didn’t hear a single shot today. Not sure what’s going on

    Not much happening on our farm either. Saw a little 4 point and one decent 6 that my son considered but took a pass on. There were a few does roaming around but didn't seem to be ANY interest in them by the bucks, not even the little guys.

    I thought the cold fronts might have helped, but it seems the rut is still ahead of us.
