It wasn’t as productive as I would have liked. We never really saw anything while hunting to really get your blood going. I had them on cam but nothing in day light. I tagged a few does for the freezer. There is always next year.
I had the same type of year unfortunately and I haven't shot a good buck for the last 2 seasons, the last one is my profile picture. I saw a few good ones both years but only during bow season and too far to shoot comfortably. Gotta take the good with the bad.

It's all part of it and I get it, but it just seemed to pour it on for a while. I had my eye on a buck who I saw last year that I had to pass and I had him on cam as well this year....but I never got a crack at him. The only real excitement deer hunting wise is that down the road about 10 miles the Huff Buck was shot (211+ typical). So nothing like a new state record not far away to prove the area can produce some big deer! I did check cams yesterday and we had a few decent bucks survive thus far, so maybe I will see them again this coming season. I got some work to for this winter and I'm gonna go back to corn or soybean plots this spring/summer and to try to pull and hold more does. I have found that if I can hold more ladies....my buck hunting becomes far better....since I don't have the cover to hold the bucks.
