Zone 9 in MA seems to have lots of deer. The areas I hunt are just pockets of woods, most are well under 80acres, some as small as 6 acres. Last year I had more regular deer sightings than this year. I hunt mostly with the bow because the areas are to close to buildings. I hope to get another look and hopefully a shot at either the 8pt or 11 pt I saw on saturday and post a picture. Next year I hope to get more spots to hunt in the "backyards" in and around the many housing developments. Good luck with the rest of the season.
