We hunt out of Hazlehurst and despite some nice bucks on the trailcams earlier in the season and our food plots coming in beautifully, we haven't seen deer #1. The acorns aren't on the ground ruining everything like last season. The weather was perfect this weekend. The four of us hunting in thick woods, on the plots, and everywhere in between but no results. I guess they're still moving at night. Anyone else having these problems out there?
We were all planning to stay until tomorrow and came home early since we saw absolutely nothing. All the cams are picked up so we don't spook them, which makes me feel better about saying they're just moving at night only. We need a solid rain to spoil acorns i guess but I really didn't notice a surplus on the ground. We do most of our killing between Christmas and New Year's but we usually at least see some does or spikes by now. I've been hunting there since bow season opener with NO sightings. It's getting frustrating.

The cameras are showing mostly night activity, but the 2 best deer seen on my place in several years were Saturday morning. I straight up choked on one and my buddy couldn't get a shot on another. I then missed a smaller buck Saturday evening twice. Yep, had 3 misses in one day. I never miss which is what is much more frustrating and bizarre.
We have been seeing deer on most hunts since PW opened.I have killed 2 does and my wife hasnt killed yet but has had chances too.She saw 2 young bucks and 2 does yesterday evening.This was in a plot in Amite county.

I hunt right through the woods from you. Been seeing deer regularly. Of course, we have 800 acres and only 4 people really hunt it. Our deer aren't really pressured much, but you do see a difference in activity now that there are all the trucks on the road in the early morning and evening.

Perry County, Desoto NF and a private plot. I saw two deer, a dozen hounds, and more road hunters than I could count. I don't mind the hounds but the road hunters piss me off more than the lack of deer.
