I decided I would do some walking today to see if I could find a buck. I covered a lot of ground. At the far end of my journey, I found an area that a buck had torn up. It appeared that he was in the area when an oak tree was dropping acorns. He had plenty of rubs in the area, and some of the trees he had rubbed still had the bark on the leaves.

Along the way, I found a handful of scrapes. I will be spending some time in this area over the course of the next few weeks. It’s unfortunate that it takes me so long to get to this place, but I think it might be worth it in the end. I’ve seen some big bucks in the area in the past and killed a few too.

This scrape looked much better than it appears in the picture.

I had a good afternoon in the woods. I didn’t see very much sign, but it has rained so much lately that it’s hard to see sign. I found where two bucks are working, and I think both of them could be killable in the next week. Hopefully, our paths will intersect so I can see what the bucks looks like that is laying down the sign.

As I headed down the mountain, I snapped this photo.
