Wish my season had been that rough, now given I passed up quite a few small bucks but the biggest I saw on my farms was a 4 point, I ended my season with 3 does, I never saw 41 deer total, by far my worst season in a long time

I don't post kills much anymore other than does, because if i lose a deer, you listen to what an idiot you are, and if you shoot a small buk, someone would have let it walk or has something smart A to say about it being small, but I'll give it a go.

Shot a 3 pt opening day of bow. didn't see a deer for like 2-3 weeks after that. I only can hunt on the weekends. Had an oppertunity at 3 does on one hunt and could not get a shot at any of them. they caught my wind and bugged out. Passed a spike, and ended bow.
Shot a small 8 pt on opening day of ML. First deer on my own personal property that we just bought and first with my new ML. Missed a good 8 pt on the last day of ML due to powder not igniting properly.
Shot a doe and a 7 pt during rifle and missed a doe rushing the shot.

I only had 4 opertunities at does this year. 2 of those opertunites were on the same bow hunt. I killed one and missed one with my rifle. I saw nothing bucks all year long and passed on a ton of them. this is the only the 2nd time in my 20+ years of hunting i killed 3 bucks. I geneally don't do it.

well here in smith county,didnt bow hunt this year,killed a spike opening muzzy weekend,he was alone,and only curious acting,then seen three does week later,let them go cause had plenty light left was hoping for big boy to come play,then few other days same thing few does at a time no bucks let them go as well,then first week of rifle had a nice five point that probably would of score 100 to 120 and appeared only about 2half years old let him go in hope of seeing him bigger next year,he had a nice spread and mass,then couple days later killed a ugly five point also only curious acting,appeared to have poor antler growth,then had several days of does being let go again,I killed one doe one afternoon before dark ,then week ago I actually shot a doe and lost her,which sucked. first Ive lost in 10 years,then on jan 4th saw four deer and buck trying to breed doe she pushed him off and teased him and they ran right toward me, he chased her and grunted and stopped ten feet from me so I dropped him turned out he was another poor looking buck a 3 point,that completed my season.So the best buck I seen all season hunting was the big five I let go,looks like im gonna finally get into food plots and scouting cameras next year,never got started on either yet,but will this spring and summer,but oh well still got alot of meat in freezer,lol

9 days of pre season scouting.
178 hours on the stand
77 deer seen
36 different hunts from 32 different setups
killed 7 (5 does, 2 bucks)

I was out of the country dec 1st through the 14th, which is the rut this part of the state, though the weather was terrible while I was gone. I also passed up the largest buck I have ever had the opportunity to kill as it was just across the property line.

It was a great season and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I spent a lot more time camping and staying overnight as a guest on friend's leases and way less time driving. Couple of pics from the season:

Buck in a deep hole in lauderdale Co.

Hatchie Refuge:

Ridge at BuckWild's place. -killed 2 deer here:

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.
