That is East Tennessee for you. And the farther east you go, the tougher it gets.

You got that right. I did good to see 14 does total on a large lease this year. Maybe it's just me but I'd like to think it's where I'm hunting. I went to a unit L county with a buddy this year and saw more deer in one sit than I typically do all year.

I normally see 100+ deer in a season,this year,I seen between 15-20 deer total for the whole season,and that's counting the 4 I killed..I hunted alot too,it was a miserable failure this year..I was glad to see it come to an end.

I saw less than 20 and I hunted nearly every weekend, plus many week days after the first of December. The majority of the deer I saw were in one weekend at oak ridge on the December hunt. If I hadn't drawn that hunt, I would have seen less than 10 for the year. I killed 4, but I had to work for them!

I would estimate that I saw about 40. I'd say I went hunting about 20-25 times. I killed 3 deer (1 in archery, 2 in MZ) and missed my first deer with a rifle in about 15 years - scope mount had gotten knocked loose.

Man i honestly would not say how many i seen, but i hunt every day until the last 2 weeks of season and spent time doing other things. Have no clue as to the # of deer but i seen for certain 37 different bucks from archery until rifle.

I tagged out and killed a quota hunt freebie which was my biggest deer ever.

7 pt, 9 pt, 11pt, 13 pt.

I will have a rough time matching this season
