My count would be a close estimate, but I would say 7 bucks and 13 doe. 30 years of hunting.
Took one doe and one buck with a bow, the rest with the gun.

This being my 51st season (missed 4 yrs while in Navy) I have been lucky enough to have gotten 27, I know its ONE of the first things to go....all have been bucks....2 with ML, they came the last two years on the last day of season....I hunt Adirondacks and hunt alone 95% of the time....I really enjoy being out there....the "hills" keep getting bigger each year so stay closer to the "long narrow clearing in the woods=road".....Doug

Patriot, thats scary! Ive got a bulletin board in my garage right next to our door thats loaded with pictures of friends and families "trophies". In fact this year was so good to us my wife and I decided we gotta get a bigger board. I'm a smoker unfortunately, so when I go outside to have a cigarette Ill sit and stare at that board for a long time just loving and soaking up the memories. Its a great thing that I enjoy and everybody that comes into our house can see what we are passionate about!

It's like your my brother from another mother![:D][:D][:D]

I've been hunting white tails for about 22 years and have taken at least 2 per year to put me up over 40. No more than 1 doe per year, many small 8 pts and a couple of 10 pts, one wall-er last year...11 pt.

Took my first two bucks of my bow career this year, spike and small 7pt...which rivalled the rest as far as trophies - for me.

Haven't seen the rifle buck I wanted yet...for 2008.
