  • How's deer activity out your way at the moment?

    It's been fall levels around my area. There's always a bump in spring once fields green up and cover is thicker so the deer feel more secure on the fringes. I've had to hit the breaks on mature deer, both doe and buck in velvet, several times in the last week in the late afternoons and early evening, and have been hearing a lot of people mention same. I'm seeing a lot of hit deer and few of them are fawns.

    It's not that their unseen ghosts all year, but right now I'm seeing the level of activity at times of day that I typically associate with mid August.

    I've seen quite a few does and fawns, but not a lot of bucks. Was up in WI visiting family the first weekend in June, and saw one really nice buck up there, but haven't encountered anything like that here. I haven't been out and about a lot, though, for various reasons.

      Okay, are we back? I think maybe so. Thanks, Natalie and crew. Right, deer activity .... I haven't been out much and really can't say. Next week I'll probably get back into my routine of short nightly hikes after work, since it's light now so late, and will keep an eye out for anything different. In the meantime, speaking of unusual deer activity, check this out ....

        Wow! Can't say I've ever heard of a deer on a roof before.

          I had to laugh at the commenter who said, "Well, clearly, it's one of Santa's reindeer on vacation." Only question is, who'd be crazy enough to go to Syracuse, NY for a vacation?

              Ooh, not a fan of Syracuse, eh? Where's your sense of state pride?

                There are a lot of good things about it -- right now, in fact, the AHL hockey team is playing in the Calder Cup finals; I go to a lot of their games. I like some of the local food specialties, and growing up, I was a big fan of SU basketball. Thing is, it's becoming a cesspool, crime-wise. It used to be sort of that odd "little big city" that was a pretty decent place; now it's like a mini-version of Chicago.

                  Just normal for this time of year down south. The deer are mostly staying in deep shade and creek bottoms to escape the heat. I'm still seeing my three "pet" does at the camp when I put out corn for them. They know that the sound of the tractor means that I'm in residence and they expect to be fed in the evening. Pregnancies are becoming obvious---the fawns won't drop until August, due to our much later rut.

                    I've noticed more mid-June activity than usual, I've startled more fawns out of the hayfield than normal. Seeing more fawns could be due to our coyote population being lower than its been for a few years.

                      Yes with all the rain we gotten here in Fl, our food plots are growing and so are the weeds, last time out we saw 12 in one food plot 4 in an other plot Looks to be a good year. Some of the older fellers go out on coyote patrol & bear witch.
