"Seeing bucks!?"

Any of you peeps out there seeing bucks on this muzzy hunt? It's been a dead zone for me and everyone I've talked to! I hiked 26 miles in the first 2 days glassing my azz off and found one 2 point! Areas where I normally see 10-20 bucks per day. I cannot figure it out. My only guess is they are waiting till the last 5 minutes of light to even move around for the day. Mornings I haven't even seen a deer! Evenings I've been seeing doe and fawns starting to move around the last hour of light.

What's everyone else been seeing?

Coming home from work tonight in Mt. Pleasant ,about 4:30 , I had 3 bucks cross the road just before Fairview. 2 were small and 1 about 20". 3 or 4 days ago had 2 bucks I. My field behind the house, both 4X4 low 20s. Also been a nice bull hanging out down the road a PEICE. Have a buddy with a tag watching him. I have 0 big game tags.. If I had a tag probably wouldn't see chit.

Just asking in general about how it is going across the state. Not asking for any spots or nothing. I know where they should be. Just ain't seeing em.

Tough SOB here as Well!

Early Snow Storm here didn't Help!

Weather Screwed with Us/Deer Every Day!

Back Me Off to 1,700 Yards,650 is a Little Close & I'm Not Comfortable with it!

A GUT SHOT at 1,700 Yards will Still Make Some Good BRAGGIN Rights so I Can Say I At Least Hit Him!

They are probably hiding out with all those 350 bulls that disappeared on you

My thoughts too. It's supposed to be a deer hunt, not a death march.

LAST EDITED ON Oct-19-17 AT 03:36 PM (MST)

Spent quite a few days between bow-hunting myself and on the muzzleloader hunt with my son this year.
Saw lots of deer but there seems to be a shortage of yearlings this year. Most years we see some everyday, this year I saw one yearling 2 point all year.
Wasnt too surprised as I saw quite a few dead fawns on the winter range.
Definitely going to be missing a year class of deer for the next few years. Hopefully a bit better winter for them this year.

hunted the muzzy season on central mtns manti. up on n skyline mainly. it was very bleak as far as buck go. saw a few small bucks on private but only one spike on public ground. weather and road conditions didnt help but still covered a lot of ground with very little deer sightings.

My friend had the mid season wasatch elk tag. I was actually impressed with the deer and the quality of some of the bucks we seen.
The elk, not as impressed!
