It was mid October before we caught our first deer on the trail cam. As the season progressed we started seeing more and more. The disappointing thing was most were does or small bucks. The rut usually starts around the first or second week in December this far south. You could almost tell from the trail cam pictures the day it started because the big bucks were out in full force. We caught this one on the camera on December 16.
My youngest son took a nice 9 pointer the first week in January.
