Took a few hours today and went out scouting down in Hocking Co. We hunt the Wayne National Forest area near Nelsonville. I got out about 7:00 AM and waited about 45 minutes when I saw 2 nice size does come in to my stand area. They stayed for about 20 minutes or so before walking away. Not 10 minutes later a bigger doe showed up and behind her was a really nice 8 point. He wasn't the biggest I have seen but his rack was almost perfect on each side. He followed her right past me and stayed in the area for almost 15 minutes. He was spooky most of the time I could see him and a while later when 2 other bucks showed up I figured that was the reason. The 2 that showed up weren't as big but I'm sure he wasn't to pleased they were in the area. One of the bucks was a 6 pointer, the second was a large spike. I saw 3 other does the time I was there. I left the area about 11:30 and on the way out spooked 2 other does. Glad to see the Deer are still in the area. I won't be hunting until gun season but will be back in 2 weeks to check them out again. I'm taking my camera with me to see if I can get a few pictures. Nice to see the deer are still moving and active. I'm sure the Rut will pick up by the time I go back. Looks like it will be a good season and I'm looking forward to spending the week relaxing and doing some serious hunting. I did see a Red Chevy P/U on Rt.33 near Logan with an OGF sticker in the back window. Nice to see the support.
