So, how did everyone do this season?

I struck out all 3 days I hunted. I didn't even see a live deer until Sunday afternoon as we packed up the truck. 2 large does came into the yard just to mock us.

For our group of 3 all we had to show for our time was one small doe that a friend got. We were hoping to tag 3 bucks and 1 doe between the 3 of us but that just wasn't going to happen this year.

There was almost no shooting in our area the 3 days we were out.

Our group went 3 for 7 this year. and 2 of those only hunted a day a piece. I personally did not shoot a deer this year, so far. As usual, I've had plenty of opportunities to shoot smaller bucks or does, and have passed. I usually let them walk and give them a chance to grow or someone else a chance to shoot. I will get plenty of meat from our party, so just taking one is never the goal. I'm usually looking for a really big deer that I've seen on one of my trailcams, or the sign that they have left behind. This year was pretty rare in the fact that we had so many big deer active in our area, 5, and we just could get the hammer down on any of them. All 3 taken were smaller bucks. But the group of big deer will only be bigger next year. 356 days and counting..... wink smileyI still have my bow season, and a muzzleloader if I get a chance.

We had 5 in our group. We got 1 buck and 2 does. Nothing to write home about and brag. I had the same problem as most and didn't even see a deer. My dad hunted Wisconsin as well this year and I will attach the photo from his buck in Wisconsin. (if i don't screw it up)

The buck field dressed out at 275 pounds, the taxidermist says 22 score-able points.

I didn't hear much shooting this year in my area north of Brainerd. I also didn't see that many deer tracks while grouse hunting. The area I hunt has some wolf packs and with the liberal bag limits of late the herd is down from what it was a few years ago.

I've also noticed road kills are way down. Last year at least 4 were killed in front of my house and I spotted at least 30 others. This fall I've only seen less than a dozen.
