Had a successful year. Harvested two bucks one opening of Archery, one November the 8th a Doe and a Buck that's at the Taxidermist. Seen deer every hunt that I went. Now this year could be different but last season was Great!
I have had no trouble getting meat. I usually shoot bucks for meat and leave the does alone to make more bucks for future meat, unless I'm hunting in an area with a high deer population. One area I hunt a lot, we have noticed a world of difference since we mostly stopped shooting does altogether.
I shot 2 fat bucks for burgers & 2 knot heads for the grill. Even the ham steaks are tender.
And of course we let the grandkids shoot deer also. Each got a fat spike. Well one got a nice 4 point. He was proud of that big 4pt. 3 year in a row he's got a 4pt.
We also seen plenty of does. Should make a lot of bucks for the up coming season.
This past season I hunted 39 days, 61 morning and evening hunts, saw 218 does, 145 bucks, and shot 2 does and 1 buck. Every hunt had multiple sightings. Yea, a lot were the same deer, but we have no shortage here.
I could have killed my limit the first 2 days of the season.
No they aren't if so we would have a ten buck limit not two the three I did get this year are all gone now no hamburger or any meat left I feed three people I need five or six to last until next year so that's your opinion two bucks would not do for meat
