I didn't spend much time deer hunting either, but managed to spend about 50 days in the field hunting different species.

I didn't hunt as much as normal this year. I took a doe and buck before the end of the second week. I went out sparingly after that for a 2nd doe. I did a lot more small game hunting this year than normal because of that.

Well..... we started archery season off on July 1st hunting on some crop damage permits. The farmer didn't want any guns. Then the season came in Sept 15th and it goes out January 31st. Since we have unlimited doe permits I haven't tagged out. I think I'll quit on Jan 31st and get ready for turkeys.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Who's counting.???....(besides my wife). I try to get in a couple days a week as a minimum. Early in the season more. After a couple bucks I slow down.

Never keep a count but I would assume between 20 and 30 mornings or evenings. I'm sure if I asked my wife she'd give me an actual number. Did have a pretty good year with getting one by bow and two by rifle.
