39 unique deer this morning. Best was a 120in 3.5yo tending a doe. Fun hunt for sure, had 17 at one time within bow range. Still looking for a big cull to cap the season.

That is impressive on many levels, congrats. I have had some 30-40 deer "sighting" mornings over the years, with the majority being antlerless deer, but I could never be sure some of them did come by me more than once. Never a dull moment, and you never quit watching deer long enough to get cold. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like a great hunt. I doubt I saw 39 unique deer in TN in five different counties. Maybe not even in SE Ohio.

That's more than I will see in a season and that's counting the deer I see on my way to work and road kills here in NE TN

With all the talk about how to get your kids "hooked", well here you go folks. Take them to hunt with maniac. Only time I've seen that many deer was in Pike Co, Illinois sitting all day over a big food plot. 43 deer total and could have been same deer here and there.

That'll keep you fired up and on your toes. With that many deer in front of you you'd think a buck would have to fall in there somewhere. Going back in time I only remember seeing that many deer on a morning set twice before and both times it included a shooter or two.

Hunted Giles Co. and Lincoln Co. with both places having ample deer herds but I have never seen that many deer in one set , you must have a killer place .

It seems like they “yard up” this time of year sometimes. And it’s feast or famine on deer sightings when they do.

Yesterday was a fluke... usually see 10 to 15 from that spot. But it does help that I have the best late season food around

It does help when you have food. Last Saturday, my daughter and I saw 39. We had 17 come out in one group. This morning, I saw 22. We've killed 9 does the last 3 trips.

Those are fun hunts but 17 in bow range at once allows for no mistakes in moving with all those eyeballs!!! I hate trying to get drawn back when a dozen are right under you!

no kidding. I sat frozen for 1.5 hours. My butt was numb and every muscle in my body was cramping. I managed to not spook a single deer :)
