Only hunted East TN and actually hunted less than I have in a long time. Dont keep up with #'s anymore but would guess somehwere around 150+ this year. Nov rut hunting was pretty good with lots of deer saw daily in November.

Wow,how many times did you go,I saw that many,probably more opening weekend.


That is East Tennessee for you. And the farther east you go, the tougher it gets.
agreed. i saw six total this year and one of those was the 8pt i killed.
How many times did you go ?
every weekend from mz on. killed the 8 pt. the day after thanksgiving. was having plenty of pics on my cameras of bucks and does before season.

Never kept count throughout the season as a whole. A couple of years ago for about 3 years in a row, I saw roughly 30 different bucks and who knows how many does. This year, it seems that 80 percent of my sightings were bucks, but not that many does. It will vary from year to year. Especially when you have habitat changes, which we have had a lot. Though only 2 of my buck sightings this year were shooters (for me 3 1/2 or older) and I killed one of them. Most years, I get 1 chance at a 3 1/2 or older buck and that's it. I missed one in 2011 that was at least 4 1/2. Next year, it should be even better

I hunt almost every day from bow season through the end of rifle. On days when I work, I only get to hunt for an hour or so during the evenings. I simply mark on a calendar when I see deer and whether it was a buck, doe, or fawn. Sometimes I may not be able to positively identify the sex so I just put "deer".

I never have kept a journal but I should. I do keep track of the days I kill a deer. I can usually remember the whole hunt and where each deer came from that day. If I had to guess, I would say, not counting the few that blew at me going to stand, maybe 110-120 sightings, with 21 being in one day. The most bucks I have seen in one day has been 7, and got skunked at least 3 or 4 hunts, mostly afternoons.

I am lucky enough to be able to. im in college, so I work all summer and save up enough to make it through deer season then start working again after it. I try to make it as much as I can. I love it to much not to do it that much!

I had somewhere around 25 sets this year, most sets at least 6 hours, several all day sets. I saw a total of 5 deer, one of which I killed and the other four were on the same day I killed the 4-1/2 year old eight point. It's tough hunting these mountains of East Tennessee but somehow I manage to get-r-done every year. I still say if you can come to the mountains of East Tennessee and kill mature deer, year after year, you can kill a mature deer anywhere in Tennessee and probably the United States.

I agree 100%. Toughest hunting there is anywhere in America. I admire anyone who can kill mature bucks out of those mountains. Too tough a hunt for me.
