Default Deer missing

I have killed a pretty good buck this year but I have never seen not seeing deer so bad. Food plots looks great but no deer feeding in them. I pulled cards on 3 cameras and had very few pictures and not one deer in day time. I have walked on management area and could't find an acorn no where close by. Food plots have Oats,Bruzzi, clover and trophy radishes are 8 to 10" high
The last 10 or 12 years I rarely went to the stand and didn't see 5 or 6 sometimes 10 to 12. I have moved around hunted thick you name it I have hunted it. This has happened in Rockdale and Jasper next to management area.

Same thing here but its been like that for years. Kill more does they say, but they don't say when to quit.

Jasper county I have never or has anyone else killed a doe on my place in 11 years. They kill every deer they see on management area so that probably solves that problem. Rockdale honestly 3 of us hunt it and 1 bow only. I personally have not killed but 1 buck there in 3 years and I really can't tell you when the last time I killed a doe anywhere.
I hunt way more than most people and don't have to see a deer every time but sure does help. Food plot attached.

I've hunted 13 hunts and seen deer all but 2 hunts. 40 or so deer,8-9 different bucks. The rest does and fawns. We have a good crop of youngins on our club. All from the same stand. This is a 3000 acre club in Johnson county. Last year I hunted this same stand a lot and saw about what your seeing this year. I hope your luck changes for the good
Thinking is for those that don't know
