Yesterday I saw 2 hens together with 7 poults. Later I saw a single hen with no poults. Then I saw another Turkey in da rd but too far to indentify. Shortly after that i had a gobbler jump up and fly off by da rd. Also saw 6 deer

Wow..... sounds like a great trip. Did you see any fawns? Might be a few week before they are moving around.

I don't remember the date [early Oct. ?], but I had a "late" fawn with spots on camera last year.

= let more bucks walk, kill a few more does.

I bet your active scrape activity is slow during rut ; no need to scrape. More than enough does to go around ; so much so that some does go thru 2 or 3
28 day estrous recycle.

I did not see any fawns out there. They are just starting to drop fawns here at work.

At Clear Creek WMA..... the pre rut activity [starting in Mid Oct.] is fairly high. The Bucks make lots of rubs and scraps.

About 10 years ago, I found one area [about one acre] that had maybe 15 rubs and 15 scraps. About a 1/4 mile away, I found a scrape that was 2.5 feet by 5 feet long. I went back in that area 2 weeks later to check out the big scrape but could not find it. I should have marked it on the GPS.

In the second pic. the small tree in the background is also scrapped on.

I saw 2 gobblers and 4 deer this past Saturday and stepped on a full grown copper head. Thankfully I stepped on his head so he couldn't strike. If we could use tapatalk I'd provide a picture of the snake but oh well.

Poult Thread (6/10/19) Seen any poults?
Maybe we can start a new thread that won't get locked or break down into a physical altercation. I know the poult count doesn't start until July 1; I haven't gotten my form yet, but I guess it is coming soon. Anyway, I have seen the following so far:

5/23/19: One hen/8 poults (East Feliciana). The poults were about the size of a chick that you would buy at the co-op if you have ever seen those, a little smaller than a quail.

6/9/19: Two hens/6 poults (St. Helena). These poults were about quail size
