Anyone to this point had a tough archery season?

I stuck one mid October in the shoulder and lost him. Other than that not many deer sightings.

Mines been tough but that's mostly my fault. I've had at least 5 opportunities and just haven't made it happen. Sometimes I want the perfect angle/range/animal. I've had a blast and now I'll hang it up until Mz opens.

Plenty of time left grasshopper. Haha! Yea, I called you that. ;\)

Mines been rough so far. Work has been crazy and when i have been able to get out, my normally good spots simply aren't producing.

It'll get better. I didn't even see a shooter buck until Dec 31st last year. He was chasing a doe and I killed him at 40 yards with my bow so there is still hope.

Been rough his year....with all of the acorns on the ground the deer often don't have to move far, if at all. Season is still early though, so all is not lost.

I'm pretty excited about getting out the smokepole and rifle.

I still have a couple archery only spots and I still shoot my bow 3-4 days a week so the bow will still be in play.

There is definitely plenty of season left, excited about the rut!!

My bow season has been identical. I stuck one on opening day and had broadhead failure. Haven't had an opportunity for redemption. My spot that normally produces 10+ deer (sightings) per hunt has been producing about 1/2 deer per hunt this year. As in one deer every other hunt... not half of 10 per hunt \:\(
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

You're never to old to learn something stupid.

In my archery spots the woods are magic during the rut. I can't wait to spray about half a can of a Buck Bomb and wait. It's worked before.

I havent seen near the deer I normally do. Ive had a normal success rate, I generally kill 2 does with a bow, and I have killed 2 does so far. Its just that sightings have been way down. Also have way less decent bucks using both properties so far. Im really hoping that changes.

Haven't seen the numbers as I usually do . Think so much food and warm nights hurt my early season . Camera started getting mainly pics at midnight right as season started until here lately
