    Traveling back from Atwood lake Tuesday evening (8:00p lite rain ) after a slow evening of fishing. We spotted 30 or more deer all along Bark Rd. They where everywhere . Seen some nice Bucks and,does with there young. Turned a slow evening of fishing into a good night just to be out . This is to early to get the fever, but Man it got my blood a flowing .All bucks that we got a good look were still in velvet.

    NEVER TO EARLY!!!!:! I have been getting stuff ready every weekend since the first of June:D Did you take any pics of the critters?
     

  3. I saw two real nice bucks the other night here in Strongsville. They were standing maybe five feet from each other and both had nice big brow tines. I didnt get tho count the pts on the bigger one but the smaller one was and eight pointer that had a symetrical rack.

Will be taking out my bow as soon as i get off work , Im starting to get a little feverish

    Our municipal treatment plant backs up against a Metropark; naturally both properties are no-hunting zones, the Odecoleus Virginianus have no fear of us and commonly graze within twenty feet. Discouraging especially when I think of how far and how long I used to walk the unglaciated hills in the southeast of the state, looking for winter meat!

    What started as a test of our digital cameras zoom turned into our ability to stay focussed on a boat bobbing in big waves :D

    I just got a report tonight from my uncle that they have been seeing 4 bucks( 3 nice ones) feeding in the alphafa field that my stand is on. he said they have been crossing the fence every evening about 35 yards from my stand.

    Too bad he is getting ready to mow the field this week:(

  10. Here are a few of the 30 or so does and fawns I saw while driving around some public land the other night. The triplet fawns were neat to see.

  11. Driving home yesterday evening (around 5) I got a good look at 1 fawn and I think there was a second one along side of 33 just north or Carroll (heading into Lancaster). The one fawn was looking through a fence at what I think was either another fawn or maybe a doe. I think it was trying to figure out how it was going to get to the other side of the fence.

    Seems i'm seeing A LOT of deer for THIS TIME of year in the open fields . What's strange is the times i;ve seen some of them . Yesterday at high noon(in louisville ) two decent bucks feeding on a fence row . Plus the numbers of fawns,does and bucks during the normal time ( late evening ) . Have i just been missing this in the past or i'm just getting lucky to see them ? To bad none of them are close to my hunting ground (nobel co.)
     
  13. Saw 3 bucks last night ; a six, a nice eight, & a nice 10 point. All three were still in heavy velvet, although the big 10's velvet was turning dark brown like it was getting ready to die & start peeling. Won't be long before they start rubbing !!!! Fired up now and going to start shooting the bow a bunch.
    Keep the reports coming & good luck,
    Tim
     
  14. Great to know there are some nice bucks out that way. We are building a house on Heritage Rd, which butts up to bark! Cant wait to get out there!
     
  15. I drove up to my parents this weekend and on the way I saw 2 decent bucks standing in soybean fields. I also saw about 15 Does. Good evening to drive home.
