First day here in NE and the deer activity is looking fairly promising. In the morning we saw a small buck running does all over the place. We were in a creek bottom where would could see a pretty good distance through the timber. Saw plenty of does and the small buck running them but nothing big. We went to hang a new set at about 11:30 and saw a couple does being chased by a one sided buck with a 4 point side. The evening hunt went pretty well also with a few does passing through and rattled a small 7 point. The 7 point strolled on by and locked up with another buck a couple hundred yards away. We don’t know how big the other buck was we could just here them sparring. Found plenty of scrapes today and are ready for the big boys show up!
