    The date has been set for the 30th so lets hope theres a bit of movement .I understand they are very much weather orientated ,needs to be a bit colder to kick off ,is this true? .

    30th Sept? Will be in full swing then.

    If it's 30th of this month then no chance.

    They have started early up here in the north of scotland, called a mature 6 pointer in from 620m taking him at 140m, neck was starting to swell and coat was changing slightly, plenty of fat on him and i was eaten alive by those bloody midges.

    You should try a sceery call and hoochie mama call, blow the sceery then a quick squeeze of the hoochie- brings them in a treat
