Best of luck to anyone who hasn't connected yet... now is the time, deer are still alive, and not many people are in the woods...

My son got one during youth hunt. I haven't seen a deer in the woods since muzzleloader. Really getting discouraged. Next Saturday is all I have left!

After 42 years of very intense deer hunting had had one of my most memorable seasons with no big buck down. I think as I've got older I enjoy the hunt more than the kill. I've seen more bucks this season than I can ever remember and I think the age class structure of the herd is fantastic. I spent the best morning with my grandson when he took his first deer and it has been a blast. Congradulations on all who have taken deer but I'd bet I've had just as much enjoyment as you, already dreaming about next year's fall.

I haven't killed one. Been a few times by myself and trying to learn a new lease. Seen some deer just haven't pulled the trigger. My son (9) killed one during the muzzleloader and since then have been trying to get the big 6 we've seen a few times at my in laws for him. It will be his first buck ever. Seeing all kinds of does and yearlings but not the 6. Saw a 4-pt last night and gave him the green light but he wanted to wait. Went again tonight and saw 9 but no buck. Going back tomorrow afternoon. This weekend I'll be solo at the lease and hopefully something goes down then.

I feel embarrassed but also the need to vent. While I feel that I am a good hunter, I freely admit that I have been very blessed/lucky in my deer hunting. I've got a 140 class 10 pt mounted and have killed a deer pretty much every year since I was 10 in KY where the gun season is only 10-14 days. This is my first year to hunt in TN and I am hunting land owned by family friends thats about 150 acres and I'm just baffled. Buck sign everywhere, counted 47 rubs on a 4 wheeler trip around the property, and I've seen exactly 3 deer all year! Friend killed a nice 10 pt out there and more rubs appeared afterwards, so know there is another.

This week will be my last week.

Don't know if you are riding a fourwheeler in or not, but if you are try walking in. I have better success walking than when taking my wheeler. JMO, your mileage may vary.

Between work, an almost out of hand kitchen remodel, sick elderly inlaws...this season has been a total wash.....except maybe for that coyote she dog I took out on opening day of muzzle loader....if that counts.

I've killed 4 but the last one was the 2nd week of November. seems like forever ago so I feel like I should be on this list. Have had Plenty of deer just out of bow range or marginal bucks within range. Had a nice 8 pt at 60 yds last night walking towards me but stopped and feed for a minute then turned and walked away. the story of my season so far.

I have hunted alot this year and only saw two shooters. They were together the first Sunday of the season, so needless to say it has been a long, frusterating season.

I got skunked in 2008 but...

I did not own a bow or a muzzleloader.

In 2009 I killed 2 deer with a bow and one with a muzzleloader.

I let a ton of deer walk this year. Only shot at one with a bow and missed judged distance (clean miss) I had a good 8 pointer I let pass twice if he had showed up one more time he would have been on my wall. But just enjoying the outdoors made my year and my buddy getting his first wall hanger after 14yrs of hunting made it worth it...

Just got back from our annual Illinois doe hunt. I killed 2 more.
This years total now is 16.
14 with a bow, 2 with a muzzleloader.
I helped lots of people fill their freezers.

It was a good year even though I got injured and had to drop my back-up bow down to 47 pounds.

It amazed me how well my 300 grain arrows did on those big slick heads with a 47 pound bow.

Magnus Stinger 4 blade 100 grain.

It is the only one I can afford.

I am, however, designing one of my own.

I didn't kill one this year or last year or the year before. But thats alright I dont mind. I didnt get to go much. Opening weekend of MZ and opening weekend of gun was the only time I got in the woods. I've killed alot of deer over the years so I get as much enjoyment watching them as I do shooting them at this point in my life. I enjoy all you guys and girls posting pics of your deer. And telling the stories of how you killed your deer. I just hope that I can kill a wall hanger one day but I'll be the first one to admit that I will have to get in the woods a whole lot more than I have in the last few years if I want to be successful.
