Not talking about personal problems\lease issues or the sort. Talking specifically about deer movement and range conditions.

When will this season turn around?

I guess it depends on your definition of "bad".

I've gone three years without shooting a stag, passed up on some good ones but just hadn't found the right one and I woulnd't have called those years bad. In terms of deer numbers, this year was my worst year, end of August it finished on a high taking my first muzzleloader red stag (a small 10pt) but all year looking for the big boys I was really frustrated not being able to find any good deer. Saw one small stag in the rut and that was it.

But I hunt because I love it and it only gets better so I'm not phased smile


I prefer meat in it's original packaging.

confused2 Live Oak, Mesquite, Hackberry....Had a few acorns this year in spots but just not many. All the taller trees are Live Oaks with a lot more of scrub Live Oak in front and around those.

Without question, it was last season. The only one that I can remember not seeing a legal buck, other than a few spikes.

This has been one of the best I can remember. I've seen several buck with legal width racks and spikes as well.

I have never had a bad season of hunting yet in 45+ years. There is much more to hunting than killing that makes it successful to me.

You know how it feels right before opening weekend? I feel that way before every trip to the lease all season long, and has nothing to do with killing.

Last year was a good season and I didn't kill a deer. I haven't killed a deer since 2011. 2008 before that.

I don't even feel like I'm in the game this year.

Every season is a good season, just being in the great outdoors is enough.

Last year for us was the worst I can remember but it's all relative! Our place is notorious for seeing action every hunt but last year I took the GF hunting for a week straight and saw one group of hogs on the last night. We did count 13 does crossing the next pasture one morning but they were at about 600 yards off - little too far for her! Already got a good 11pt down this year and have seen another good 9pt I'm hoping to get her on this weekend!

2008 for me. Dad passed away December 9th.

My best hunting partner and best friend is now just memories and pictures.

On the good side. I now have a 4.5 year old Grandson that I'm able to pay it forward with. This young man took his firt deer this year! No one holding the rifle, he did it all and made a GREAT shot on a white tail doe at 85 yards. So proud of him. I know my Dad would be as well.

Pay it forward - Kids are the future.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.

Don't know that I ever had a bad one?

Last year was tuff. Neighbor had 180 acres of irrigated milo headed out and ripe in the field for the first few weeks of season and immediately after harvesting he planted wheat... which came up in a weeks time. Still a good season though and it surely gave the deer some good eats to grow.

This year and last. On a new lease. Haven't seen a shooter buck in person. All on camera. I have spent countless hours in the stands and on the ground. I'm blaming the acorns.

I've killed deer every year since about 1963, except for the year I had the brain tumor. That was a bad season. Like redchevy, I don't think I've had a bad hunting season where I got to hunt.
