You've listed 1 - 10. What happened to 11 - 24 or 25 - 49?

I've shot over 25 quite a few years. Since January I've shot 7 already. The most I've shot in a 4 hour period is 5. That's a lot of dressing and dragging, so I try to limit it to 2 a day. Just Saturday night I shot a 150# doe. Our properties are so infested with deer that it's not unusual to seeherds of 20 to 30 deer.

I find at least 10 to 15 deer per year on just one 250 acre parcel which were hit by cars. The antis and many on the 'fence' just don't realize how many dead deer/road kills they DON'T see!!!

All the meat is used by my family or any of many different needy families I have on my 'list'.

The most I shot was 8, when we were trying to thin some does. Started to see some improvement in rack size after about 5 yrs of doing this. We ended up losing this lease when racks were improving due to the death of the land owner, but hopefully the people that bought the land are seeing decent bucks.
