    Bow season ended here Sunday. On the way to work on Tuesday I counted 21 deer within 5 miles of my driveway! I only saw 3 for the WHOLE deer season which is 4 months long.

    Season closed here the 15th. The wife had 13 cross the road in front of her last night on the way home. No traffic so she stopped and counted them. Several more out in the field that did not cross. No horns.

    Not really and there is not a lot of hunting around here as it is all private land. There are a few WMA's in the area but they are all farther away than the distance I was at. I noticed around the beginning of the season a lot of people put up "No Hunting" signs. It would be funny to find out that they have been conditioned to go into hiding for so long once they notice the new signs!!!:curl-lip:

    I used to swear that the night before opening morning, when we were all sitting around the fire "plotting our strategies", that the deer were doing the same thing!!

    I know that I'm bummed out now, thinking it'll be nearly a year before I get to go after them again. :crying:

    I've noticed this too, every year I always see deer and especially pheasants after the season closes.....I don't know how, but they know...oh yes they know:excruciating:

    Don't even bring up birds!! There is a corn field about 8 miles from me that was COVERED with Turkeys 2 days after the season ended. When I say covered, I counted about 68 birds and the went over the top of the hill and from farther down the road I could see many birds on the other side than the road was on.

    The last few days we had snow and they seemed to be everywhere.

    Yeah, we've had snow on the ground most of the winter, making all game stand out better.....great for hunting, but just seems to rub it in any other time.
