After reading all the reports of successful deer hunts this year, I figured I might as well add mine to the list, too. After waiting out the bad weather for most of November, I finally got to get out for a few days a couple of weeks ago. My partner couldn't make it on this trip, so I ended up going solo. I had two does down early and took a buck at the end of the first day. I saw lots of other deer and could have had all five tags filled in just a few hours if I had wanted to. The second day was a little blustery and I didn't spend too much time outside of the little cove I was parked in. I did see one more doe mid-day, but passed hoping to see another buck or two. On the way back in on day three, I punched my last two tags on a couple more bucks. In the three days I was out, I counted 13 deer that I didn't take a shot at, plus the five that I did. If the weather cooperates, I may head out again this weekend and see if I can get my partner on a few deer. Here's a pic of the last buck I took. It's a nice 17-1/2" wide double fork with nice big eye guards.
And here's a pic of a little fawn doe I thought was adorable.
