I will take off 10 or so days from work, hunt weekends, and since I get off at 2:30 in the afternoon I will hunt several afternoons. Several of these afternoon hunts usually are reserved for taking out my daughters, especially when it is warmer.

I expect to hunt between 35-45 days or parts of those days (morning or afternoon) this fall. Last fall I slacked (my own assessment of my overall effort), but still managed to hunt 31 days or parts of the day.

This year I won't have school, so I won't be missing every other weekend.

Last year I'd guess I hunted between 30-40 times. I imagine I'll hit 40-45 this year. Probably 15-20 of those will be half day hunts.

Just about the same here. Thanksgiving week off to hunt, and every Sat thru out. Couple days during ML, and 1 or 2 during archery. Days are subject to change and rearrange depending on deer activity. ;\)

I am fortunate to get to hunt nearly ever day of the entire season. Most of those hunts are evenings after work. Counting weekends, vacation days, and "sick" days I'll get about 45-50 full days to hunt. I will get the week of Thanksgiving plus a couple of long weekends during muzzleloader.

I'll probably hunt parts of at least 50 days. I don't bow hunt like I used to because I lean more towards optimum buck moving hunting time now but once muzzleloader opens I'm there for the duration.

Every weekend of the season, so that's about 25 days. Plus another 5-7 weekdays a month for about 40 days.

This thread is a perfect example of why opinions and viewpoints expressed on TNdeer may not be representative of the "average" deer hunter in TN. Look at the high percentage of those who expect to hunt 40 or even 50 or more days this year. Statistically valid surveys of TN deer hunters find that the average deer hunter only hunts 12-14 days per year. This disparity strongly suggest TNdeer users represent primarily the most serious deer hunters and not the average deer hunter.

Also, I think some probably think they are going to hunt more days than they actually get to. Like I would say probably 25-30 but it is inevitable that I am going to get stuck at home doing something for the ole lady on a couple of those days, then weather isn't going to be good for another couple days. But even given those I still would say I hunt more than the "average tn deer hunter". BSK, when was it released that the average is 12-14 days per year? I agree though, TNdeer has alot of folks that aren't your average deer hunter, their knowledge of deer hunting also suggest they are not the average deer hunter.

MattR,

Data from the hunter surveys conducted by UT, under the direction of the TWRA.

If I had the opportunity to take a long, detailed look at both that survey's data as well as the TWRA's hunter databases I strongly suspect that the median (not the average) days hunted would even be lower than the average. I think what we have is the majority of people in TN who deer hunt actually hunt very little. They are opening week of gun season and some opening weekend of MZ season hunters only. In addition, I believe the hard-core hunters--those hunting 30+ calendar days per year--are a small minority of hunters. However, I also believe this small minority of hunters accounts for the vast majority of deer killed each year.

In essence, we have a majority of hunters who hunt very little and are not consistently successful, and a much smaller minority of passionate hunters who hunt a lot and are regularly successful, accounting for most of the deer killed each year.

It would be interesting to know more statistics regarding deer killed in TN each year, like how many time they hunt a year, how many deer they kill each year, what time of day the deer was killed. It would be awesome to have all that information even if it was just for a year. I would love to have that kind of info and put it all together and see what kind of patterns and information I could take from it.

I hunt until I get all the meat I need and will then focus on antlers. I have three leases in middle TN and hunt a few days in central Missouri but don't think I will come close to hunting 50 days!

I only missed 3 or 4 days season before last, I missed about 12 last year due to tagging out so I plan on hunting just about every day


I envy you sir


Its all in the shift I work, I get to hunt from 7:45 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. everyday through the week and I hunt Saturdays and Sundays.

I dont hunt a lot of evenings because my better spots dont produce in the evening.

This thread is a perfect example of why opinions and viewpoints expressed on TNdeer may not be representative of the "average" deer hunter in TN. Look at the high percentage of those who expect to hunt 40 or even 50 or more days this year. Statistically valid surveys of TN deer hunters find that the average deer hunter only hunts 12-14 days per year. This disparity strongly suggest TNdeer users represent primarily the most serious deer hunters and not the average deer hunter.


I haven't seen the data for this but I can pretty much see it with my own eyes. a whole lot of guys only hunt opening weekend and then thanksgiving weekend if that. you can definitely tell a difference on those weekends and really that whole week when you see the traffic and the shots and all of that.

Yup, and those "opening week of gun season" hunters are actually the MAJORITY of hunters, by number. The 30, 40, 50+ day per year hunters are a small minority. Yet that small minority kills the majority of the deer harvested each year.

I should keep a record this year... never really kept a hard count, but I would say I averaged 2 hunts per week the entire season. There where a few weekends I didn't get to go because I was out of town, etc. - but there were other weeks I hunted 4-6 times that week.

I know people that hunt more, but I assumed most are nowhere near that.

20 to 25 days a year is about typical for me. I don't hunt with a bow so that is a lot of days I think. As much as I look forward to deer season every year, I admit that I am ready for it to end by the time I hunt this much and get some sleep in the mornings.

I usually average 10-15 days, I can only hunt weekends so I'm somewhat limited. This year I'll probably be looking at 6-8 days...too many weddings to attend this year. I'm definitely not in the serious deer hunting category, just enjoy being in the woods and sitting around a campfire with good friends.

I purchased some hunting land 72 miles from our house. I suspect I'll only get to hunt there on weekends and holidays. But, since I arrived Giles county 6 months ago I have met a few people that offered to let me hunt their small properties as well so I hope I can hunt them during the week after work. If I get out 2 times a week when I'm not in northern VA I'd be one happy camper.

some portion of every single day of all seasons has been what I have hunted for many years.
