I'm wondering if you might not see any second cycle rut activity, or if it's strictly a bucks putting weight back on hunt.
    I actually do occasionally see bucks cruising looking for a late one. It's definitely nothing to plan a hunt around. It seems like around Thanksgiving the bucks sometimes move around home. The buck I shot this year moved 1.5 miles about that time, luckily to another place I hunt. I've taken several bucks like this that stay through the beginning of gun season. You never know when they will go home though, it's a situation where you have to strike fast. Some stay a day or two, some a week or so. By mid December they are almost always back in their core area it seems like. While they are outside their core area looking for those last does they can be vulnerable compared to when they are in feeding mode in their home territory where they have hunters patterned better than hunters do them.

    I know some other guys with a lease, and they knock down some pretty respectable bucks over corn during the first week of December
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    A lot of guys have issues with baiting deer...

    I don't care either way, would rather hunt early as opposed to late.

    Why not early Muzzleloader? I have hunted it twice in Kansas, low pressure and deer haven't been pressured. Pattern a good buck and you have a good shot at a nice one.

    That's my plan, then return for firearms if unsuccessful early.

    That was mine as well- didn't exercise it the 1st time since I shot a very nice 10 point that scored just under 170 inches. Had a good friend of mine that had property there and was always inviting me up there to hunt. He loved his muscle cars and he restored a 55 Chevy that was pristine and won many awards. He passed away a few years ago. He had about 150 acres and his family had many more available to hunt on the family farms there. I heard one other shot all week around us. Never saw another hunter.

    Nice Country.
