Well with the season only 2 weeks away, I will start the thread for field notes across WI.
Last years journal
was awesome with a lot of entries from across the state! We had 11,381 hits on it and 505 entries into the journal
. It is a great tool to compare what is going on across the state and what the local deer are doing in your area. I hope to get some more hunters to put their entries in and I hope the great posters we had last year will continue to add to the journal
Whether you see no deer or a ton of deer, your entries will help with the big picture. After a couple of years we will be able to see patterns for pre-rut, the rut itself, and post-rut behavior for our state and locales.
When your hunt ends with a kill, please post a picture with your animal. It does not matter if it is a doe, nubby, or buck because each one is a trophy to that individual!
I personally wish every one of you the best of luck this year, and I hope you enjoy the hunt and what goes into it as much as the kill!
