i have been hunting in an area for 5 years i've harvest deer but no trophy, i am a meat hunter any deer to me is a trophy. well i have not seen one deer in there this year, i haven't been in there enough for them to patten me. the area is mostly pine with hard wood another thing i don't see many deer hunters around this year, could that be the reason ? maybe thats it no one is pushing them. What do you think i am from mass.
