Last sit of regular season this morning.. had thick bedding behind me and standing beans in front of me. Saw a doe at 100 yds around 745 but let her pass. I may still get out with the ml...

With 6 days to go (counting today) and 5 tags in my pocket went out for a afternoon sit. Walked in for about 1/4 mile and only cut three sets all tracks made last night; all of which were 75 yards or less from the road. Sat til dark and didn't see a thing. At least it turned out to be a nice day.

After adding todays hunts to my journal, I saw that I now have 204 hours of stand time (54 hunts). Haven't seen a deer in my last 23 hunts (since 11/10). OUCH!!! At some point, I need to accept my fate! LOL  #worstseasonever  #thankGodforalcohol

If you where close by I’d push the woods for you every time you went out. It’s gotten to the point that I’m depressed for you.

I don’t have that many hunts or hours in.  Last count was 24 hunts for me, most were 4-6 hours.  Today was #25 and 3 hours.  Gorgeous day, lots of fresh tracks, but not a single deer spotted.   At start of archery I saw deer every single hunt, since mid-November I have seen less than 5 deer total.  Oh well, going to try one more afternoon this week and then Saturday and Sunday.    Then out comes the muzzleloader, hope to at least put down a doe for the freezer!

Cheers buddy!  Had hunt #56 on Sunday. Haven't even seen a deer last two weekends.  Worst season in years for me too. Maybe we should split a cow.

Yikes  I hunted total of about 12 hours saw nothing in the  area that I have  a  dmp in which has  no antler restrictions locally,  but when I went up to the other  area  I saw plenty of does  but no dmp for there and a part of a buck which with out knowing how many points because of antler restriction they have I   didn't want to take  chance and didn't shoot . Just to far to see with all the brush in the way and it walk off out of sight .

Too bad about that Buck 007. You showed good restraint by not shooting . Hope you see more of him next time.

Passed some small bucks in bow season but right now would take one for the freezer.  I would prob pass them again in early season but end of season without even a doe in the freezer, all are fair game.  One more weekend of gun and I have three days for muzzleloader so still in it but it's been tough. Esp since last season was my best ever.

Wow,talk about highs and lows. I am keeping my fingers crossed for all you hardcore guys with meager sightings this year. You are more persistent than me,i would have thrown in the towel by now.

I think odds continue to get better through muzzleloader.   Pulling for cabin, rob and Otto and all the others that are still looking to score one.  Keep at it.  Only takes one opportunity!

I got my hunting license at the end of October, went out on 5 hunts before this one and today with the help of friends I got a button buck which I thought was a doe so I took it. Even though I hate the idea of taking such a young buck I can’t take it back so here he is. My fist deer ever. It was a hell of a hike and a grueling hike back. Until next season.

Congrats... That's the best eating.. IMO any deer is considered a trophy

Come on now, it's your first deer what's wrong with a button buck??  Any deer you kill should be considered a trophy.  Don't get wrapped up with what you see on the TV hunting shows or any hunter telling you that hunting should be all about antlers.

congrats on the first deer!  Good to have success early-  sure keeps you hooked.  Be proud of that button buck - like Steve said TV shows arent reality for sure.  And be proud when the steaks hit the grill that you got this on your own.

My first deer was a spike , 3.5 inches long, i shot him when I was 17. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Your first deer is well your first deer. Congrats .....
