    I'm right next door to you on the WSW here in Warren county haven't seen the first sign of rutting yet. Just one small scrape,a few tiny rubs and no bucks seeking or chasing. Saw a slew of deer off the road on my way home this early morning but didn't see any antlers. The scrapes that are used every year haven't been opened up yet either. Very odd....

    I have noticed that they seem to be a week or so behind on the scrapes in SE Ohio this year. My property just got tore up over the weekend. The last 2 years it was around the 18th-20th.

    I noticed the same thing the last couple of days. Scrapes and rubs are starting to pop up. Seems later than normal at my place.

    Im in N/E Ohio and drive all day. Monday thru today I've seen 11 bucks chasing does 3 of them were 140"plus. All activity was from first light till noonish. Those frosted mornings got them going.

    Jackson county- small bucks getting a little ramped up, scrapes starting to appear and get worked a lot, I agree with Jesse, next 3-4 days will put a damper on things but after that when the temps drop things should start getting real good. I'd also say to hunt those scrapes the next few days after the rain, bucks like to freshen them back up then.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    When you coming this way?

    I'm seeing an increase road kills. I'll log 1K miles this week on the road all over eastern Ohio and WV, so if anything is kicking, I should see some signs of it.

    I grunted in a small 8 pt buck this morning about 8:15. That was it. It's time to start keying in on any doe family groups and their preferred bedding areas.
