Last time I killed a buck was 2011. I have killed a doe or two every year I've been stateside but no buck since then. This year is the year. I hope. Haha

I have never Harvested a single animal. My combine is strictly for crops

Haven't shot a buck since the last morning of the 2010 general season. We sold the family land I used to hunt on that next spring, and I only hunted 1 weekend each of the next 3 seasons. Last year I finally got a lease but couldn't connect with a mature buck. I've got a good feeling this year will finally be the year I put another buck on the ground, though. It's been too long.

When I first started hunting, I hunted for four years before shooting my first deer. I wanted my first deer to be a "nice buck". On the fourth season, I shot my first deer, and also the first 8-point I ever saw.

I also didn't kill a buck in 2011, 2012, or 2013. So I guess three years.

oh, about 22 years.....killed my first buck around 1992ish, did a lot of watching and killing does after that until about 2001 when I graduated college. I wasn't able to hunt much at all until about 2011 when a certain deer caught my eye. whiffed from 2011-2013 hunting certain bucks and killed a buck last year.

even as a teenager I didn't just go out looking to kill something, and even when I saw a buck I always hoped his big brother was following him, so I waited and watched, a lot.

I would say 3 seasons when I decided to only start killing mature bucks.

Now it has come to be certain mature bucks, so I will have seasons I don't kill a buck, like last year.

Went from 1998 to 2007 without killing a buck. Did not kill a buck in 2008, 2009 or 2012, scored on mature bucks in 2010, 2013 and 2014.

The last 4 years I've killed bucks on our family place. Judging from cameras this year will be no exception. I've killed many doe in the past, just not feeling it these days. Now an Axis doe, that's a whole 'nother critter.

I started hunting without my dad when I was 9. I didn't kill a deer until I was 15, so I guess 6 years.

I didn't kill my first deer until I was 27. I hunted as a kid but then went from about 12-26 without hunting at all.
