Hi all, just joined to look for reasons why I didnt see a darn thing worth shooting at this year. I did during the summer...and dead on side the road, but in the woods I never saw rutting during daylight. I hunted early, late all day....nothing. This is the first year in 20 years of deer hunting I didn't get a thing! Been hunting the same 75 acres for 5 years now and all I saw this year was a lil 6pt...I saw him alot too! With the same 5 or 6 does all year. I did see scrapes and rubs, and one I will post on a 10" around tree, but never the big deer I usually see. And 1 more thing, when people who do not hunt go meandering around in the woods, don't you think they should haveto wear hunter orange? I saw a lady walking a GOLDEN RETRIEVER through the woods I was hunting. I would never shoot until I know exactly what it is I am shooting at, but that tan dog sure had me fooled for a good minute. Scared the hell outta me when I saw her behind the dow with a green jacket and hat on!
anyway, this year sucked for me!
