Weird happenings

I just don't know what's going on with the deer around here. The doe I shot was being followed by a nice little 6 while on the other side of the property, my hunting partner was watching a good 8 walk with a forky?
On a drive thru the country, 50 yards from the road a doe was bedded down in the picked corn with a forky/5 point laying with her. I'v seen two other does with small bucks with them, does all alone, and one nice buck all alone. It just doesn't make any sense. It's just been a crazy year.

    ALL the does I have seen were alone and the bucks were all roaming but without does. I shot the 8 after watching him touch up a scrape, then killed a doe all alone in the same place 3 days later. A non-typical year. My season is over,but out today watching and saw another nice buck all alone.

    It went bonkers here just after Halloween weekend. Bucks chasing does everywhere. I had a couple of close encounters (2yr olds and a 3yr old 8 all broken off) but not with the bucks Ive been looking for. It only lasted for 3 or 4 days and then nothing. Ive noticed a few new rubs but I haven't seen a single deer in my last 4 sits (1 am, 3 pm), not even a doe. Starting to get a little frustrated. Gun season starts here Saturday. That means I only have a few days to get on these bucks before the pressure is really on em. Besides I hate wearing blaze orange with a bow in my hand so im probably gonna head to my "Bow only" areas. My fingers gettin itchy. Shoot em up!!!

    It is seventy degrees here in southern OH today, those warm temps must have some impact on deer movement.
