Default how many deer do you guys typically see?

On average how many of you guys see deer everytime you go out? and how many big mature bucks do you see a year.

during bow season i only see deer about 50 percent of the time.
during firearm season i usually see around 15-30 deer every day.

I see deer about 75% of the time. Mature deer is a toss up. Who knows, might go all year an nothing or might see three or four.

I see deer pretty much every time I go out, might only be one or it could be as many as 20-25. Mature bucks, If i'm lucky 2-4, and by mature bucks I mean 150" or better.

Mark me down for a big goose egg. I don't usually see anything. Last year I went 26 times and saw 4 deer. Saw a 1 horned spike on hunt like 20 then the last day last hour I saw 2 spikes and a doe.

Back in 2000 I would see around 30-80 deer a night mostly doe's and a few bucks a couple bruisers 140-150ish and always usually seen one in the 170's. Now I see around 0-40 deer a night and some Monsters. The bucks are few but much healthier

Like most depends on the time of year, early season like now its real hit or miss with it being hot, as it cool I consistently see deer on my sits, then as usual as it gets closer to the rut I see more deer , as for mature buck I see few because of the surrounding properties shoot anything with any size antlers on their her heads, so bucks have a snowballs chance of making it to maturity.

Bow hunting I see deer 1/2 to 2/3 of the time , but to many times I see them well out of range
Mature bucks , I see 2 -3 total before the rut
Then several more during the chase / rut

Here in NY, if i even see a fawn during a day out i consider it a good day, and maybe a mature buck once every couple of years

Being from N.C. I know what you mean Fishtaconc. Some people around here won't let them mature. I'm not trying to make anyone mad by saying that because its their right to take what ever they chose as long as its legal. But I do see deer about 50% of the time and the only mature buck that I seen last year was on the last day.
