I hear ya pgpn. I very rarely ever shoot 2 bucks in a year. While it would be awesome to still have a tag in my pocket I shot the biggest buck we had on cam at both of my farms. For me there is something fun about shooting does in December. You don’t have to worry about trying to age them or questioning if it’s a shooter or not. It’s a simple as good sized deer, aim, shoot. :)

I’m headed up to hunt two days this weekend. Will also probably be out for a weekend during black powder season.

I’m hoping they are all just hunting so much they don’t have time to post on here. Lol

honestly though we have a legit shot at this thing. A few more deer will put us right near the top. Lots of season left boys!
1 more buck and 4 does and we will be right there. We are in very good position.

After the 15th I usually peter out. We have some deer coming back during daylight on camera and might get my daughter out after one of the scrubbers.

I wish i wouldve recovered that doe on 10/1, but O didnt. Id hate to shoot another just for points. Our freezers are overflowing.


I might take another doe if I can get caught up around here, like it was said, late season does are easy during gun...

Eh I didn't see a hair. The rest of gun is sure to be a grind without any acorns to key on. Best I can figure is they are just browsing on the little bit of green leafy vegetation still up. I will likely get out Sunday afternoon and maybe at some point Friday. I expect Friday will be a pretty busy day in the woods.

Once 1st gun is done if I haven't popped something I am gonna fan out and do some searching.

I still have a few cameras out and am watching the deer and for the life of me I can't figure out what they are eating right now.

I’m not sweating it fellas. I’ve killed a buck the last two thanksgiving weekends in the same spot. I have deer on camera during daylight. I’ll be shocked if I don’t at least get a doe this weekend.

I'm betting on an out migration pretty shortly here from my usual acorn ridges and swamps. They will probably relocate a couple miles to ag for the winter. Probably be some huge herds this winter all over the state due to the lack of mast crops.
