Great buck WP! Congrats to the others who had success as well.

Honestly, "success" to me anymore is being able to actually get a week off from my hectic work schedule to be able to enjoy the camp life with my son and my friends. Harvesting critters just makes it even better. Our camp went 7 for 7 on mulies up in the Northern wheatfield country, with 6 bucks (5 being in the "mature" category), and a kicker doe.

The highlight for me was pulling a double with my son. He had spotted a healthy 3x3 he wanted, so he made a good spot-n-stalk and dropped the hammer at 297 yards. I was on an adjacent ridge about 150 yards away, and a larger 4x4 decided to head my direction after all the commotion. That proved to be a fatal mistake for the large buck, and within a minute there were 2 bucks on the ground. Neat father/son moment, for sure.

Thanks Nick! thumbs I was more excited for my son anchoring his 7th buck, plus later that day he filled his 2nd deer tag on his own. That gives him 10 deer now; dam good for a 16yo!

The rut is happening, at least in Olympia and Goldendale. My buddy got an extra stinky 3 pt Monday after work with extra wet and stinky glands. My dad shot a buck Sunday and had another buck horn the crap out of it after it dropped.

Now's the time!

Yup - it's on! Big ol' stinky, thick neck sonofaguns.

I'm not surprised that one went after the buck your dad shot WSU. Once they see red, they get awfully dumb don't they?

Can't wait for this next 3 day weekend!

Too bad the weather is staying so nice, but the rut should have them moving regardless.

The clear, moonlit nights seem to have diminished early morning appearances as the boys are likely bedded or sequestered with does in quiet places well before first light. As slight confirmation, was just about to leave the stand yesterday evening when there were a couple of young bucks in a full out, knock down, turf tossing donnybrook so I stayed put to spectate. A forkie appeared to investigate the young gladiators and shake a few low fir boughs himself as darkness started to firmly enfold the remainder of the day. He turned abruptly and focused his attention that redirected the Leitz 10x light gathering view through the trees to a mature buck staring back at him but tending a doe. Too dark to count points as he again turned to the doe but they swept up well above and beyond his ears. Although nothing for the freezer from that encounter, a heart was quickened and more memories were made....

I'm a bit bummed I filled my tag. I always wait until the end to get serious and this year you get an extra day! The 1st should be the best day of the whole season.

Had another fun weekend out in the woods. The moon phase and weather was crap, but some animals were out and about moving around here and there.

I passed on an ancient, totally white faced old man buck that had a broken off antler on one side and a weird regress on the other. He was a big bodied animal, but he would have been a hamburger deer. I wouldn't doubt that he was 9 or 10 years old.

Still have late season modern Whitetails, Blacktails and late archery + muzzy, so I have a bit of time...

The waxing moon and clear nights definitely messed with my mojo this year. T'other evening had a very tired doe troll a persistent forkie past the stand three times in her hopes of getting him permanently off her ass. Didn't work....

Middle of last week, saw a doe squat & pee for a flemming buck as objective proof to Romeo that she was not in estrus. He got a good sniff of her stuff and sure enough, walked off to find better options. Last Friday evening was the first time bucks were seen hard at it with does. That said, perhaps we'll have better luck in a couple weeks!
