    I've been bow hunting twice this year. Last Saturday I saw 9 deer (5 does, 4 bucks) and yesterday afternoon I saw another 7 (5 does, 2 bucks) for a total of 16 so far. I thought it would be interesting to try to keep a running count of deer seen while hunting, (I saw another 5 on the drive home but I don't count them). Anyone else interested in keeping track, post your sightings here. This could get very interesting.

    I seen a couple on the tracks the other day. They must have been resting. Do they count.

    I counted up the sightings in my hunting log...since the end of September I have seen 16 does and 2 bucks in 3 trips out to the 100 acres that I hunt. Hot weather is definitely affecting the herd movement, when things cool down more permenantly I expect to see alot more. I'll keep it updated.

    I saw three does and two yearlings in one group yesterday... no bucks. They were headed my way along a ridge when some jackass slammed his cardoor. They immediately went off the ridge away from the sound. Some people never learn....:confused2:
