Haven't seen any on Juneau yet, figured I would chime in. I hunt southern juneau, sat last night have 12 doe it a cut corn field....Not bucks to be seen. Have noticed a few scrapes. Also noticed there are not many dead deer on the roads around here yet, compared to Monore and Jackson co. Think the best is to come this week and next. Happy hunting.

Another year in the books. I hunted around home this bow season but my buddies went 2 for 3 during rutcation. Gun season was the best one we have had in a very long time. The snow and cold definitely helped. Everyone in camp saw deer which is a first. I saw deer every sit but two. We had 2 “first deer” and the kids were wacking and staking the does. The old men added 2 bucks to the pole. Can’t wait for next year

I changed my plans and didn't hunt from Nov 1 - 4 since it was so warm.  Headed back out after the rain on 11/5 and hunted thru the morning of 11/11.  Shot the first buck I saw all season at 8 a.m. on the 11th.  Not much of a story.  He came on the usual trail that comes from the north into the food plot and stopped on the edge when he got there.  Didn't put the best shot on him, but he only went about 20 yards and fell over.  Waited til 9 to get out of the blind and he was done.  

He was a huge animal.  I believe I've had him on camera as a 10 ptr now for this the 3rd year.

Hunted this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning. I saw 1 deer, a small buck, a spike and 3 does over the course of my sits combined. Nothing exciting as far as rut activity goes. I did notice 3 additional scapes opened up since I was last there. My neighbor shot a nice 8pt Friday morning.

I may hunt this coming Friday if I can get out of here Thursday after work. Then of course Saturday morning I'll switch over to blaze orange.

Good luck to those getting out this week!

Hunted all last week minus the rain out on Friday afternoon and Saturday. I'm not a fan of sitting in the rain. Action was decent early in the week then slowed a bit with the warmer days. Mornings saw the most action. Thursday morning was particularly good as was Sunday morning. I saw 15 bucks in total and 2 or 3 that were pretty decent but out of range. Nothing real big. Watched 2 bucks snort wheeze at each, a first for me. Scrapes are being ignored. Will be back up end of the week to give it another go.

Hunted mornings and evenings from the evening of 10/19 thru the morning of 10/24.  Didn't hunt Saturday evening or Sunday morning.  Didn't see much.  Had 6 does and fawns come into the plot on Friday afternoon right at dark.  Scrapes are opening up.  Nice one on camera.  All pics at night yet.  Back out 10/26 evening thru 11/6 morning.  Good luck to all!  Weather doesn't look the best but oh well.  Can't do anything about that.

Was up last weekend. I only ended up hunting Saturday morning, saw 1 spike and found 3 new scrapes. It was a nice cool morning sit.

Between the heat and catching up with a buddy hunting was not a top priority, and that's ok too. Had an event to attend in town on Sunday and was back home around noon.

Haven't seen a deer since I passed a small 8 in September. Lots of rubs showing up.

Hunted the afternoon of the 6th thru the morning of the 9th and again the same on the 13th thru 16th.  Not much to show for it.  A doe and 2 fawns on 2 sits and that's it.  

There was a scrape that opened up sometime between Friday night and Saturday afternoon.  

Heading back out Wednesday the 19th thru the 24th then again the 26th thru Nov 6th.  Weather doesn't look the greatest thru the 30th.  Oh well.  Grind it out.

With the exception of getting winded bright and early this past Saturday morning the entire weekend in bow camp was pretty uneventful. The highlight was a nap Saturday afternoon, I don't get time to do that very often.

Hunted the evening of the 24th and saw a bunch of does and fawns so that was encouraging.  The rain came in just after dark.  It stopped so I sat the morning of the 25th until about 7:30 and it started raining again so I got down.  I don't mind the rain as much as the mosquitoes.  They were pretty bad.  Heading out again tomorrow after work (10/6) for the weekend.  Looks to be cooling off.

Unfortunately I won't be bowhunting till the 15th this season. Been busy with a couple new ventures.

Any report from those of you who have been out this year? I hear the skeeters are pretty bad.

2021 was a little above average for our group with an amazing week between Nov 7th thru the 13th. I have never seen so many bucks and 4 shooters to boot. I shot this biggest buck of my life(see picture of big 9) on the 13th but I hit him high in no man’s land and never found him. I’m still sick to my stomach to this day but he did get shot by a neighbor opening weekend so at least he didn’t go to waist. 

This was the first year in I can’t tell you how many years we didn’t put a deer on the pole for bow season, but the activity was amazing so it was considered a good year.

Gun deer season we had two youngsters shoot there first bucks so that was the highlight of the year. We ended gun season with 4 bucks on the pole, Spiker, forker, six point and 8 pointer and a lot of new memories to share for years to come. 

This was also the first time I havent shot a deer two years in a row EVER but it was still a great season. Already counting the days until next season. We are north of 21 and east of 80 FWIW. Good luck to those still hunting.

When I say we had wolves, I mean I saw, heard or found sign of them fairly often when I was there out and about. I have not heard or saw any for a couple years now. I don't mean to imply they are no longer there, which is most likely not the case, only that I have not encountered anything for some time now. 

If your intent is get away from wolves I don't know that buying land in Sauk county is going to meet your goal. There is a pack in Columbia county, I'm sure there is some presence in Sauk as well. They move around, a lot.

Not trying to tell you what do do. Just trying to pass along my experience.

Hunt,

My property is south of 21 west of 80. Most years there seems to be a good number of deer along with a decent buck or 2. I don't run cameras so no real proof but tracks and activity while on stand. We had wolves pretty bad a few years back and that made it tough with deer going nocturnal.

Food plots made a difference for me. I've also done some hinge cutting to promote ground cover. My plots get hammered but I don't see herds of deer, they are there though.

There are a lot of factors that go into just seeing deer, and whatever amount of deer you think you should see. I'd give it some thought before you buy more land. IMO. Good luck!

Hunted last week Thursday to Sunday morning. The action slowed a little when it warmed up later in the week. I saw a large buck following a doe and grunting, sounded like he was pleading with her to stand or run. Kinda funny. They came in to 40 yards but were in the brush and no comfortable shot for me. If memory serves I saw 2 other spikes, an 8pt, a single doe fawn twice and a single doe. I did see deer from the tree after hours and some glimpses of chasing at a distance. Deer were definitely on the move. I did see one scrape in my travels to and from stands. This concludes my bow season as I am unable to hunt this weekend. Will be up for rifle on that Friday. Good luck everyone.
