I had a very tough season! A lot of dead slow hunting time, but a good finish. The weather was tough off and on, including a terrible opening weekend. I went iirc, 12 sits in a row at the start of gun season without seeing a deer. Including sitting at a nature preserve the entire opening weekend, completely skunked! Was ready to give up hunting. Lol.
Then I took my boy, said lets set against 2 trees, no camo, right on the food plot, and finally saw a doe that I harvested. It was very special since it was the first deer harvest my boy was part of. He was very excited!!!
I got 2 deer at a State Park hunt in 2 days. Both unantlered bucks. Five of us killed 11 deer in 2 days! Finally starting to show promise.
Then a buddy let me hunt a farm he manages. I passed 2 small bucks the first sit, since there were much bigger on camera. I got a triple of does on last day of gun season! Had 7 or 8 come in, and started blasting away!
Then I got a big doe in late muzzleloader season in 15" of snow when I had pneumonia! Doc said I could do whatever I could stand since I was medicated. Lol. Luckily I had access to my buddys tractor to recover her, or I would still be out there.
I have been working a lot, so this was a tough overall season. Only got 11 squirrels, one rabbit, and killed 2 crows otherwise. Deer is my main game, so in the end, we ended with a full freezer. I guess I have nothing to complain about.
