on my 5 day of bow hunting i shot a 10 pointer so my archery season was a short one but did hunt for a doe and spent about 10 more days bow hunting..gun season i spent 5 full days in the wood out of 9 and saw one deer(it happened to be the biggest buck i have ever seen, 10 points with at least 12 inch brow tines and very tall and of coarse i missed him, my bullet deflected off a tree or he would have been mine) bad new about that is he was later shot by the neighbors...green scored over 160 and was 24 inches wide..

Not enough!! I don't have an exact count, but probably about 15 mornings or evenings. Limited because of land to hunt, but next year I am leasing some land so it should definitely be more. I still have this weekend and plan on getting out twice.

I hunted 27 days out of a possible 39 I think. The other days we're spent chasing turkeys and small game. I killed a doe on day #5 and had countless oppurtunites after that. No buck luck though, I had to wait till firearm season.

I had an outstanding season. I hunted 4-5 days a week from Oct.1st-Nov.26th. I seen over 250 deer, just a few bucks tho. I seen a ton of turkeys, even had 2 tags for them and still didn't hunt for them. In early Sept. I got to see my friends hounds put a nice bear up a tree and helped poke it in the butt with a stick to keep it up the tree long enough for everyone to get to the tree and see the bear. Now that was a rush. Nothing like catching a hound under a tree with a bear comming down on top of you only 8 feet above your head, popping his jaws and slapping the tree. Gotta love that. The best part was letting "him", yes i was a boar, got to run another day. If we would get any snow up here I just might be able to see those great hounds put a bobcat or two up a tree.

LIVE TO HUNT,HUNT TO LIVE.
