My sightings have been down somewhat this year; particularly shooter bucks.

Stik...I hate to tell you this buddy but if I didn't see over 10 deer in 200 hours I'd be looking for somewhere else to hunt.

Not here. Saw about average. Only hunted about 12-15 days and had deer near me almost every day out except maybe 3. Had shots at 6. I think if my hot spots were not hot I would move to where they are today and not where they were last year.

i have seen more deer this year than last year for sure. Averaging 10 per hunt on each property. Missed two bucks this year cleanly. One during MZL and that was all me and one during early gun and that was due to scope being off 3.5 inches right and low at 50 yards I found out after I missed. Been a cool season for me.

that's what I am seeing. 6 in the field when I walked out last night.
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

lack of sightings started with the opening of bow season. pressure had nothing to do with it.

Pressure has EVERYTHING to do with it, especially gun hunting. Deer sightings are ok, but mature buck sightings are basically over by the first week of December. Even BSK agrees that mature bucks disappear by the end of November, first of December. Would it make a difference if we had a shorter gun season? Don't know, but there is no way that our longer than 2 month gun season does not have anything to do with the mature bucks becoming vampires.
