I was starting to get antsy with the lack of deer and specifically bucks on the trail cameras. I kept telling myself that August was when we usually start seeing the big antlers so I tried not to obsess. Finally, we got some. I am pretty sure that it's the same deer, traveling in the same circles that we know all of the big bucks travel in but I will take it.
One of the things that I have been trying to work on is studying moon phase and barometric pressure. The Wired to Hunt podcast has had some great interviews with Terry and Mark Drury and they talk about just that. I don't know how much I can apply to these Maine bucks, but it's something to try!
