    My husband got a spike, I got a doe, & our grandson got a doe. Plus, we had 3 deer given to us! One was from a friend who really didn't need another one, & the other 2 were hit by cars & given to us. So, we've got a freezer full!

    2 does with a muzzleloader,let 2 8's and a 7 go on opening day of gun ( was'nt going to steal my son's glory, he got a doe ) , a doe 2 weeks later, then did'nt see a deer in the woods for 7 weeks ! Swore I'd shoot the next legal one and the day after Christmas the 7 walked out again... Man I hate it when that happens, I shoulda let it grow, but I did what I said I was gonna do... Did'nt see another deer the rest of the season !!! That'll teach me !!!!

    I ended up harvesting only one deer this year. Didn't get out much, but the buck, which was a 4x4, was shot the second time on stand. Still had a doe tag, but didn't get a shot a one. Weird year for me. The weather, wind played a big part in my hunting this year. Weekend warrior. the buck is shown in the my profile picture.

    Thanks..

    All I got this year was one doe with my bow. Hopefully I will get another doe during the late winter firearm season.

    Got a 4 pt buck, bigger than I usually shoot, nothin to really brag about, other than 2 other guys I hunted with didn't even see anything, and one guy shot 2 does but one got away. The area we hunt is public and hard to hunt. After the first weekend the deer are hard to find, and stay in cover. They do come out, but seems mostly bucks running straight out lookin for does, and mostly at night.

    Our family has filled our freezers with 6 deer so far this year, but it seems that we are eating them pretty quickly, as well as giving some away, so I may shoot another with my bow to make up for it. I didn't kill a buck this year. I saw many many bucks, but nothing was big enough to put on the wall. This was the most unlucky season of my life for me when it comes to buck hunting. That's a whole other story in itself.

    Went several times and was hunting 1 specific buck I had several pictures of. I heard 2 shots one afternoon fairly close and Never got anymore pictures of the Big buck. Saw several small bucks and let them walk. First year since 1984 I didnt take a buck.....enjoyed the season.:big_smile:

    I had a pretty good season. I was lucky enough to harvest one axis doe, two white tail does, and a white tail spike. I also got four hogs in the freezer that were harvested during the deer season. Everything but the spike and hogs were downed with stick and string.
