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.
