DNR Outdoor Weekly Report (11-16)
Deer activity has seemed to slow down a bit from the beginning of the month. However, we started this month with a full moon and a lot of movement because of it. By the end of this week, we're supposed to see a new moon, which should increase deer activity. A lot of deer and deer tracks have been seen this year, with few rubs and scrapes.
