Any chance you could give this 12 point, big bodied buck a map to zone 16 east?? lol
early august I had what looked like a 12 pointer on camera, but he hasn't come back since..

I started off with 3 different bucks at one spot and 1 at another and does at a third spot. All 3 spots are hours appart but all have now been turned into moonscape from the logging of the last 3-4 weeks specially the one behind my house; that one was a good 12 years of effort erased. I'm severely deflated. I've still got a good site going so I'm not lost for the season. That's all par for the course for us have-nots who hunt crown I guess(victms of 'conservation' and 'sustainability' lol). Back to work! Hopefully the moonscapes turn into good food source next year, although doesn't look like very clean jobs, they left tangles of crap everywhere.

I'm seeing lots of doe's, fawns, and yearlings but no bruisers at either of my blinds yet but I'm hoping the doe's will bring them in once the rut starts. Doe's at least offer some promiss of some bigger bucks to come later. If not, the bears are plenty. I have at least 6 different bear on camera and two are real giants. Never taken one before but I think it may be time....

I feel your pain also. A spot that a friend was nice enough to share with me last year was flattened for miles. He has been hunting there for 30 years plus. We were talking about it a week ago and he was a little teared up and trying to hide it. That is where I missed a big 10pt last year. They have also put in about 30 kms more of raised road even further back in all directions. same thing last year. Thousands of acres wiped out and torn up. We gotta do something about you know who clearing all of our crown land. It is suppose to be ours too isn't it? They take everything and put nothing but chemicals back.

I've seen them by themselves many times, in the fall to early winter during the rut. I've been told (and am sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong ;-) that they will expell their fawns just before they go into estrus. I see the doe's with fawns all summer then come this time of year and later, there seam to be more and more of them traveling alone. I suppose there could be others hiding in the shadows that I don't see.

Does are as quirky as some other females we are familiar with. Some days, they just don't want nothin to do with anyone period. I've watched does travel together but kick each other's fawns away from their fawns' apples and then fight themselves and the next day everybody's good and then well, someone pee'd in their conrnflakes again. It's hilarious!
