Fresh off a vacation and totally speechless on what I saw last week which was absolutely nothing. Any good news out there other than a new Governor? Charlie Alsheimer prediction best week to be in the stand was last week. Maybe he meant anywhere but Illinois.

Thursday and Friday were really good for me in Macon county.  I seen a lot of deer and a lot of action.  Seen 11 does Friday and shot one of the adult does.  Watched several bucks cruisin and seen a couple out mid day in fields with does

Sat out all day Friday and Saturday, saw several 8’s and 6’s, very little chasing, one big buck with a doe.  The place is dead between 8 am and 4:30 pm.  There are just not that many deer in my area anymore.

I hunted morning night between November 8th and the 15th.  Deer were moving alot more in the mornings compared to evenings.  When the deer did move, I didn’t start seeing them until 9am.  I saw quite a few small 6 to 8pt bucks; nothing big.  Chasing was happening but very sporadic.  Rut was the same last year; very sporadic.  EHD really hit my area hard and the lack of mature animals is expected but still disappointing.
