Cool thread Ed!!

State =
Mn, 99% private, one hunt on public land.
Method = All bow hunting. Using a recurve to be exact.
Type of hunting = 90% Tree stands, 10% ground.
Areas hunted = Ag land and once In big woods.
Hours hunted = 30 sits I'm guessing? 3 hours a sit- 90 hours? I have no clue actually.
Deer seen = 60 to 70 deer? Again, this Is a big guess but It's probably less. I'm sure allot are the same deer.
Bucks seen = 10 I think, might be 9.
Legitimate shot opportunities = Quite a few but never took any.
Passed = All 10 or so bucks I passed, all were to small. A dozen or so doe's and fawns, not sure on that number.
Tagged = Nothing yet.
