On average, how many total deer do you see per sitting, what county are you hunting in and how large of acreage? I'll start, probably 3-5 deer on average seen per sitting, Throckmorton county and less than 200 acres.

15-25 range on a good sit and 8-12 on a bad sit in Gillespie County LF 300 acres. Of those totals it will run anywhere from no bucks on a bad sit to 15 on a good sit. Average would be around 15-18 deer per sit. I rode around corning roads the Monday of Thanksgiving week and saw close to 40 deer out of my Ranger. About 15 were bucks and the 4 different bucks were hot on 4 different does tail.

4 to 8 in Montague on 1,100 acres. Most was 12. Sometimes 1. Corn is not a big draw there and density isn't that high. Very common to have them walk right past a feeder and not stop or grab a few bites and move on eating other deer stuff.

0-3 Whitetail per sit on 2000 acres in the cross timbers.

Legitimately couldn't fathom seeing seeing 15+ deer on corn/protein at one time in daylight, too many better natural food options distributed evenly across the land to congregate deer like that where we are

Rarely have less than 10 and as many as 15 in northern Erath County on 120 acres. Less pigs during daylight hours has helped a lot. We have very few acorns this year for some reason. My son`s trees near Stephenville were loaded though. WTH
