Don't feel bad Zach, I didn't see a shooter buck until two days before I shot mine last year on Nov. 8th, and some may have even given him a pass! They will come brother, they just may be testing your patience!

It's way TOO early to be getting all bound up buddy, so you just settle on down!!! :smiley_clap:

Big bucks have a habit of falling out of your ass come late October/early November. I have no doubts you'll shit out another wall worthy buck again this year!!! rotflmao

I swear I get worked up earlier and earlier every year. I have only checked my cams two times.. So I really have no reason to be worked up. But the problem is I am not seeing any good bucks in the fields anywhere near where I hunt. SO I am stressing a little. They are getting smart to my game....Bastards...So lets just hope I start stumbling onto a couple or soemthing! It seems everyone else is getting great photos though

You didn't look at my trail cam thread did you lol. I would say my bucks so far are a little on the small side lol. The big bucks are there but just haven't come out to play yet. They didn't get that big by being stupid lol.

How many road kill squirrels have you seen up your way?

I was gonna take you grouse hunting this year in exchange for some seat time... But i don't know now. I can stare at leaves in Vinton county..

J/K man.. They'll show up.. Give it some time.. That is unless you notice an abundance of dead squirrels... Then you're screwed.. Not my words that's straight from the horses mouth.

Also about the grouse. We can go any weekend you're free next season. No return favor required. :)

Im right there with you brother.... its been a rough year & I dont think this HEAT is helping any.... I normally have several Im trying to pattern by Aug. 1st and this year Im not laying footage of anything yet..... Deer are moving LATE and like everyone said it is early.... I hope the light switch goes off and they start showing up again.

I haven't seen a shooter with my eyes yet, let alone a trail camera picture.....it's been a screwed up year from the start. Just be patient and let your experience work for you.
