I can't believe how warm it is today.. I saw a couple of tiny 4 points this morning and 4 does..going after a hog this afternoon at my buddy's property, taking my 243.

I just got a few day time hog pictures at my lease, the camera is on a deer scrape..the oak is dropping acorns and the hogs are eating them. I might go over there thursday afternoon and put up a climber.

We haven't had a single drop of rain since Labor Day(hurricane we got only 4")and it is talcom powder dry.If you have water the hogs are staying close this was my 6th .

Monday night I was wearing bibs and a hoody in my garage cutting meat, it was 70 yesterday and raining, still raining and warm today. Hopefully it cools down by the weekend and the killing will continue ;)

Nolz, we only got an inch of rain from the last hurricane. My lease between Bronson and Cheifland, it was flooded back in Sept from the summer rains.. The new owners cut about 700 of the 3000 acres this last spring and summer, pines and cypress..then rowed it for planting pines. They also cut oaks and put them in burn piles.. The deer were feeding in the cuts but the rowing and dry weather have them back in the woods. We have a weird late August early Sept rut here too.

We are seeing alot of fresh scrapes and rubs now.. I saw a 4 point harassing a doe yesterday...so I am hoping the cold coming in Friday will get the big bucks moving again. Yesterday I found an old short logging road running between cypress and pines, lots of hot scrapes and good sized rubs so I will climb a tree or two there when the wind is right.

Yes, they were going to grind the oaks but could not find a crew to do it..so they are piled up , they may just leave them to rot. The owners are a timber company and prefer pines. They cut hundreds of acres of cypress too, they ground it for mulch..
