How many total days, sits do you have this deer season, archery and general season? I have 5 days, 10 sits and all general season. Will probably shoot for 7-8 total days or 14-16 sits. What about you?

I may not hunt every morning and afternoon but I try to hunt every day during rifle season. But I'll probably miss about 7-10 days this season. I have the benefit of living on the ranch and also hunt a little in Oklahoma. I have 5 stands with 2 feeders at each stand, I just keep moving around so I don't get bored..lol

The few days I don't hunt I have a feeder 150 yards off my back porch, so I'm looking at deer every day.

I go out when the mood strikes me. I'm pretty sure I was one of the few during the "snowpocolypse" this year that was in a deer blind a couple of times, or the New Year's Day ice/snow storm before that, for that matter. But really crappy weather inspires me. grin In a deer blind is my 2nd all-time favorite choice as a way to go out...at the end. eek2

I loose count after a while, so it is easier to say I have not hunted about 14 days or so far this season. That is since beginning of archery to date. I just spent 17 days hunting for Mule Deer and taking a break since Sunday.

Have lost count of the number of days but since Oct 3rd I have hunted 2-3 days a week and a couple of weeks I hunted 4 days. I hunt on MLD land so I still have over 2 months to hunt.

I've been in a stand just about every day, minus the weekend at house in town. I've already shot my buck but still enjoy drinkin' beer and watchin' deer.

I've hunted about 9 sits during the archery season, and 3 full days, sun up to sun down during Mule Deer Season, plus 7 sits in the stand with my kids.

hoping to get out this weekend at my place cause the season is starting to wind down for me


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Atleast 40 sits maybe a few more. I’ve already tagged out on my buck but will still continue to hunt. May shoot a doe or two, might shoot some hogs might not shoot anything else but I’ll still be out there.

3 hunts for 6 sits and done this year. Done actually hunting after son got buck. We just don't have enough deer to keep hunting.. Plenty of hogs.. Santa's bringing a new toy so will enjoy that after Christmas. Some years did like 25 sits and didn’t even see a deer to shoot on a bad lease a long time ago that was only 2 miles from current place. Big acreage makes a huge difference.

2 days, 2 sits. Both of my freezers are full so no rush to shoot one. Probably will do 1 or two more just to get out there.

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

11 days about 16 sits. This is the first time my place to deer hunt has been less than an hour and a half away. Probably will hunt 6-8 more days. Then, time to duck hunt.

On a normal year I take off the month of November and half of December to hunt and I’ll normally hunt every day but it’s been so dry we’ve been making up for time we lost last winter/spring from all the flooding so maybe only 9 days so for this year but we got several great deer during those days. I’m starting tomorrow and hunting through till Christmas in Oklahoma or until I kill a target deer. Then I’m going to Florida for 2 months and fishing or I mean work smile ani

8 days a month multiplied by 4 month season equals 32 days or so….

Not nearly enough, but I did manage to work in some pheasant hunting in Iowa this year which was a blast. I probably got about 15-20 sits in the deer stand this year. elmer

34 sits so far not sure how many more I’ll get it before season ends. Lots of pigs have been arrowed and dropped but deer have kicked my butt
