So here's my story. This is my second season hunting. I hunt on about 75-100 acres of private land with 3 other hunters. The owner of the land is retired and keeps daily notes on hunting times, amount of deer, turkey, etc seen (and has been for like 20 years). 2 years ago, by the end of early bow season had counted some 400 deer. Last year was thought to be the worst season he has ever seen with only seeing about 200 deer and about 300 turkey before gun season. But this year it is even worse. Zero turkey and only 48 deer have been seen. Last year there was mostly nocturnal movement. This year we arent even seeing any signs inculding tracks and nothing on our trailcams. They arent using trails they have been using for 20+ years. We thought maybe a lot of coyotes have moved in but we havent even seen/heard them either.
As far as landscape and terrain. Nothing has changed. To make them alter their patterns from previous years.
SO, my questions are:
1. Where are all the deer?!
2. Any ideas whats going on?
3. Are other hunters having the same problem?
I am looking for a good venison processor in the Jefferson County area. Looking for ones that can do some custom meat mixs!
Any information or links you can provide will be appreciated!
