    It was a totally different time because everyone shot the first set of antlers they seen. That’s antler worship. That’s what our crew did and everyone around us did. Fast forward many years of information, studies, and technology that was absent 25-30 years ago, you got yourself a new era of hunting deer. It’s here to stay and not going away anytime soon.

    I’ve kind of lost track of how many more does and fawns that have come and gone in the last hour. Too dark in the blind to read my notes. Most have been coming from the north of me which is the primary bedding/sanctuary area. No shooters and plenty of fawns.

    Doe to fawn ratio is typically 1:1 for the season per the long term data I submit to the DNR. Lately it’s been 1:3 which leads me to believe mama is in on date.

    neighbor gut shot a deer this morning, out of one of my blinds. Bad blood trail, we started tracking around noon. Found some blood, and the deer, who was very much alive in an adjacent property. Almost ran me over when it jumped up. Saw that it was a bad hit - liver on the near side, and worse on the exit. Gave it a couple hours, found it 50 yards from where it jumped. Horrible, awful experience. Classic gut shot, but with a good outcome. Got is rinsed within a few minutes, we'll see. Told him it's at best a sausage deer. 5 pt. He's 77, so its damn near impossible to have APR's.

    Back in the70s you didn’t have all the social Medea.Basically the only deer you heard about were from friends and locals in the area you hunted.And the few tv shows like Fred Trost and he showed a lot of happy hunters with small bucks.Your right most of us were just happy to get a buck.If once in a while someone got a big one most everyone just consider it lucky.Mainly most just happy with any buck.I know I was

    That is too cool! Never get tired of seeing that smile. At least the blind will help hide the white. Best of luck young lady and Dad!
