It's all good. The doe I was going to shoot this morning was literally the first one I have seen to shoot all season. Usually, I am covered with them like ticks. Not even sure why either, nothing has changed on the property.I have not been able to pull my weight this year. My apologies for letting the team down.
Archery season (October), which is when I typically see my deer, went bust with only 2 deer sighted and no harvests.
We're in the final 2 weekend's with muzzleloader season up north here and I'm still trying, but the odds are diminishing rapidly.
Heading back out in a few to a place with well established doe travel patterns as they yard up this time of year. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Sounds like some of my mornings in the woods. Hang in thereWorst entry ever. Bright moonlit morning, extremely quiet, frosty and brittle. I get 10 yards out of my yard, the first one blows. I go another 70, 3 blow to my right. Another 50 yards, 1 to my right. Another 50 yards, another blows on my left. I finally get into my stand, I'm getting set up and a family farther ahead starts blowing and taking off. I now officially hate moonlit mornings. If I had a brain, I would have gone back to bed.
Class move on your part to take the wounded deer. Always hate to see that, but a part of hunting.Had a doe, fawn, and button buck come out this evening. The fawn had a large hole in its shoulder and was limping bad. So decided to take her. Still not sure what the wound is, but will find out tomorrow when I skin her. I will get some pics tomorrow also and add her to the score card. So 5 more points for the team!

I hate shooting a fawn, but I felt bad for her. Haven't shot one in over 15 years. I will take the meat though! Some great eating!Class move on your part to take the wounded deer. Always hate to see that, but a part of hunting.
